POC Reading Challenge (2010)

Saturday, January 23, 2010



I couldn't really pass up this challenge. With all the white-washing incidents happening in the book industry, first the Liar controversy and now the Magic Under Glass controversy, this challenge was probably long due.

This is being hosted at POC Reading Challenge and the site also contains a good list of POC books. I am joining at Level 4 (Read 10-15 POC books), though I hope to read more books than that! I don't plan to chart my entire list right away. Most likely, I will come back and update as I decide. There are some excellent books out there that this is going to be really difficult to choose from!

Sign-up here.

My list:
  1. Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi
  2. Say you're one of them by Uwem Akpan
  3. Sugar by Bernice L. McFadden
  4. Glorious by Bernice L. McFadden
  5. Climbing the Stairs by Padma Venkatraman
  6. Chicken with Plums by Marjane Satrapi
  7. One Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
  8. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
  9. A House at the Edge of Tears by VĂ©nus Khoury-Ghata
  10. The Color Purple by Alice Walker
