Hello everyone, I hope you’ve been having a good week so far!
Wednesday is upon us again, which means it’s time for another WWW Wednesday! Compared to my post last week, this one is going to be a lot shorter 😂 Now, how about we talk books?
WWW Wednesdays were originally, hosted by A Daily Rhythm but has been revived by Sam from Taking on a World of Words.
What I’ve Recently Finished
I finished reading The Beadworkers Stories by Beth Piatote last night and it’s the only book I’ve finished since last weeks post. Overall, the writing is beautifully done, and I would definitely recommend this if you like short story collections, especially if you want to read more Native American stories. Most of the stories in the collection are in normal short story format, but the book starts off with a poem, and ends with a play script.
What I’m Currently Reading
I’m still reading All the Light We Cannot See and New Poets of Native Nations as I mentioned last week, but I also started reading The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein. The Color of Law argues:
…That African Americans were unconstitutionally denied the means and the right to integration in middle-class neighborhoods, and because this denial was state-sponsored, the nation is obligated to remedy it.From the “Preface” of The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein
It’s a book that discusses how the legal system affected opportunities for a lot of Black people to rise up in social class, which even though may not be legal anymore, is still affecting them today. It’s something I have a surface level understanding about, but I’m interested in learning more about, hence why I’m picking up the book in the first place 😅
What I Plan On Reading
The Fortnight Frights reading challenge, hosted by The Artisan Geek, is coming up next week, so I plan on starting in on my TBR for that within the near future! I can’t wait to dive into these stories, and I hope they live up to my expectations 😂
I made an announcement post talking about Fortnight Frights, which you can check out if you want learn more about it, or participate!
That’s all I have for today’s WWW Wednesday post! What have you been reading lately? Have you finished a good book? Let me know in the comments below!
Otherwise, I’ll see you tomorrow with a new post 👻
