Bookstores

I am a fan of Marc Lamont Hill, especially since I am a bookstore owner. Was very happy to hear how running a bookstore and selling local authors was spot on and I agree.

Best Diverse book podcast

I was mildly skeptical when I found this podcast and checked out the goodreads account because I don’t read much non-fiction, but I am so glad I decided to listen. I was hocked immediately. I love the range of topics, guest, and books discussed. I have been trying to diversify my reading lately and hearing all of these recommendations has definitely helped.
