Description:
Read 50 books by people of color
The point of this comm is to read works by people of color. (Preferably fifty of them! Or more!)

There are three ways to participate in the comm. Choose what best suits you:
  1. Do the 50 Books Challenge: read fifty books by authors of color in the course of a year. Read your books, count your books, and post your write-ups/reviews/impressions.

  2. Do a variant of the challenge: commit to fifty books, but take more than a year if you need to. Or read fifty poems or short stories in a year. Or don't set a target number, but keep count of the books by authors of color that you read in a year. Or some other variant that makes sense for you and pushes you to read more authors of color.

  3. Skip the counting/challenge aspect, but post recommendations and/or reviews, and otherwise encourage people to read works by authors of color.
Basically, we just want people to read works by authors of color. We’re pretty open to any degree of participation that furthers that end. We don't even care which books you read, so long as they're written by authors of color. You can read fun books. Easy books. Books that make you happy. Books that get your kink on. They just have to be by authors of color.

Before posting, please read the Frequently Asked Questions: why people do the challenge, who/what "counts", how to tag your posts, and other ways to earn the everlasting affection of the mods.

(No, seriously: go read the FAQ.)

Who can join?
The community is open and unmoderated. For now.

Where are the rest of the tags for the community?
