I posted not one but TWO videos last week – scroll on down to find them! But for now, here’s a few updates!
First of all, I do want to briefly address the protests that are taking place across the world, in response to years of systemic violence and racism towards black people across the US, in particular that perpetrated by the very people supposed to protect them. Australia is no less guilty than America of this, especially when it comes to the Indigenous community, and (doctor’s orders pending) I’ll be attending protests in solidarity this weekend.
In the meantime, I’m diving into a few books to better educate myself, and I’ve made a small donation to Black Lives Matter earlier this week. I’ll be donating to Sisters Inside when my next allowance comes in, and please feel free to share any links in my comments to other places that need our help too – Australian or American or otherwise.
So I’ve just finished up Tome Topple (wrap up video and blog post coming soon) and I’ve signed up for two more readathons in June (again, info coming soon!) but I’ve also just chucked my name down for this year’s Beat the Backlist.
This one runs all year and it’s the perfect opportunity to clear out my TBR shelves – anything published up to last year counts, as well as re-reads! The good thing is I can go back and add the books I read earlier this year, and they can still count towards my total.
