The 23rd National African American Read In starts in February. It's an effort designed to encourage people to read and discuss books by black authors.
Three book bloggers (Vasilly, Doret, who shared this info with me, and Edi) are hosting an online version on February 22nd. There's a poll up now to vote on what book they will read and chat about. You can vote at Vasilly's site. The winning book will be announced Monday, January 30th.
