A Reader's World

    I found this list in a forum called Book Goals. Many books listed from some of the members are wild and random to me, like what? One forum member has Ann Frank listed as her memoir/journal category. I've learned so much from white people from their interest, style and taste in music, history and random everyday things. I like reading and watching things otherwise criticized by the black community when really we should be more accepting and open minded about what they're into. I've had some eye popping moments about things they find interesting.
   Anyway, I took the time to fill in my list and it was difficult to be honest. Out of the many books I've read I never thought about some of the values in what I was filling my imagination with. Many erotica-noir books are about the same thing just told with a different twist. So, check it out and fill in your own. If you don't have a genre to fill, then you have some work to do!
