I'm continuing my dedication to reading more books by and about persons of color in the new year. I succeeded in reading 13 books for this challenge in 2010, so for 2011 I am aiming to read at least 15 books by or about persons of color. I am helping Pam and Ari out with the challenge again in 2011, so I hope you'll join us!
Here are a few books I've got on my radar for the coming year (and/or on my TBR):
Indian Killer by Sherman Alexie
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
This Bitter Earth by Bernice McFadden
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
Murder, Mayhem, and a Fine Man by Claudia Mair Burney
Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon
Kindred by Octavia Butler
Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup
Flygirl by Sherri L. Smith
Peony in Love by Lisa See
The Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan
My list is a bit more manageable and focused this year. Last year's list was a bit overwhelming. I'll keep track of my books read in this post.
