My FRIDAY 56 is from 56% of The Stray Cats of Homs by Eva Nour.
Do you read books by diverse authors or books with diverse characters (such as LGBT, ethnic minorities, religious minorities, etc)? If yes, do you have any book recommendations? Do you visit indie and/or used bookstores? Also, have you ever worked in any? (submitted by Kristin @ Lukten av Trykksverte)
I had never been intentional with reading diversely, but I realized that it means I am missing out on so so much. As an Indian, I have grown up reading books by Indian authors in both English and Hindi, and it has been a matter of convenience rather than intention.
After starting out as a book blogger this year, my reading list has become more and more diverse in terms of cultures, ethnicities, geographies and LGBT rep, and I cannot be more grateful to the bookish community for exposing me to these amazing books. I also wrote a post a few days back on some Stunning New Books by Black Authors that I’ve been wanting to read. I am planning on doing another post on recs for people who want to read diversely, but here are some of my recommendations for now:
I love used bookstores, and a large number of books I buy are used. Unfortunately, I haven’t worked in any bookstore!
