Black History Month Giveaway Hop

It's that time again!  The Black History Month hop.

There are tons of genres, I'm simply not familiar with.  It might be that I've never tried them, they don't seem like they would work for me, or I simply don't know where to start within the genre.  Even though books with characters of color or those written by people of color aren't exactly their own genre, I feel like people might feel the same way about giving them a try.  

So in honor of Black History Month, I'm going to help you step out on a limb.  I'm giving away a book of your choice that features a person of color or is written by a person of color.

You pick the book, I ship it your way.

Rules for the Giveaway are below the break.

1.  This giveaway is open internationally to mailboxes that The Book Depository ships to for free.

2.  No rafflecopter this time (I'm lazy).  

3.  Simply leave a comment with either:
  •  the book you are interested in if you win
  • your favorite book with a culturally diverse character or author 
  • your thoughts on why there aren't enough books out there featuring or written by a person of color.  

4.  Please leave your email!

5.  This giveaway ends February 27th

P.S.  For others who are expecting books in the mail from me... they are coming!  I'm sending out a few each week so they don't hit my bank account at the same time.

P.P.S.  Thank you Alysia for everything you do!  I love that you keep both our blogs running :)

    1. I didn't know Alex Cross was a person of color. I feel like I should have known that though.

    2. Rumor has it he was modeled by James Patterson after one of his friends that was African American. Then Tyler Perry played him in the movie version. So it kinda counts. :)

  3. I would choose either the graphic novel Zero Killer by Arvid Nelson, or Bayou by Jeremy Love.

    Many middle grade and children's books are wonderfully diverse, so I'm not sure why that hasn't carried over into other demographics (teen fiction in particular has VERY few poc characters, which is upsetting).

    Awesome giveaway :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!
