 So this is a cool thing! A reading challenge.

Diversiverse is a pretty simple challenge, based on this premise:

  • Read and review one book
  • Written by a person of color
  • During the first two weeks of October (October 4th-17th)
Aartichapati, the host of the challenge, says: "That's all!  SO EASY, right?  It's what you'd probably do, anyway, right?  It's basically the lowest bar for participation of any reading challenge you've ever participated in, right?  In which case, there's really no excuse to not sign up, right?"

This year especially, I have tried to make sure that I'm reading books by diverse authors, particularly books by people of color. And I found out about this reading challenge right around the time I was to get started on some books by women of color, so this is just perfect! I plan on reading "Wild Seed" by Octavia Butler (I have a compilation of the four books in that series, so I may just finish them), and then read "Octavia's Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements."
