24 Books in 12 months

2019 is about self-accountability and intentionality. I’ve never been one to participate in book challenges, but in the coming year I’d like to hold myself accountable to complete at least 24 books in 12 months. Here, I plan on documenting the books I’m reading in an effort to bolster my own consistency as well as share my reading list.

If you’re reading/have read the same books, or have some suggested reads for the coming months, please feel free to reach out to me! Part of reading and learning is being in community and in conversation with others.

Liberation work cannot happen alone.
