Unbelievable I stuck to a TBR!😅 Sadly Black History Month will soon be over but luckily #readsoullit can continue on. Hope you all had a good one and have discovered some new authors and new books to read throughout the rest of 2018. My #readsoullit stack was pretty good. No duds and I managed to read 7 books. Wish I could have gotten in a 400+ page book so it looks like that will be a priority for next month. Happy continued #readsoullit reading and Thanks to you all for participating! Please check out the video below of Frank X Walker, a great Affrilachian poet from Kentucky. The best works I read this month were from him. Buffalo Dance and When Winter Come are two excellent poetry collections – MUST READS!
