And that’s it. I’m going to do some stats on my 2015 reading as a whole another day, but as far as a month of reading, this one was pretty good. I read a lot of picturebooks, which was nice, becuase they were all diverse and about groups I don’t often read about. Nearly everything I read was by an author of color, and of the things that weren’t, some had LGBTQ content or creators (or both), so I feel like I did an excellent job dividing my reading into things I don’t always choose but still found absolutely interesting and worthwhile.
