One of my favorite things: getting the notifications that my library requests are ready for pickup! Picked of all these highly anticipated reads yesterday and I’m dying to jump into this stack! #BecauseOfBlackReaders I grabbed LOT and IN THE DREAM HOUSE 100% thanks to @parisperusing ! And I first saw THE STARS AND THE BLACKNESS BETWEEN THEM on Jaime’s ( @absorbedinpages ) page and it’s been on my list ever since. I just want to remind everyone of something I saw on @byamberburns post yesterday: library requests are important too! I know not everyone is in a position to buy a ton of books right now, and that’s okay; library holds and requests make a difference too! Ask your local library to order more books from BIPOC authors, request additional copies of specific books (especially if you’re in a high hold line), tell your librarians how much you love your favorite BIPOC authors and request that they order extra copies of their entire backlist. If you haven’t already, you should go check out Amber’s post from yesterday on how you can support Black and BIPOC authors outside of just buying their books!
