I have thought the past few weeks about what I can do to make a change in my life to support BIPOC. Yes, I can vote (and I’m toying with getting more involved in helping people get to the polls or something like that). But, I read a lot, and I have decided to be more purposeful in both my reading and my book buying. I have decided that at minimum of 50% of my reading pile at any time will be by BIPOC authors. And at least 50% of my book buying will be books by BIPOC authors. It’s not a lot, but it’s a start.
