THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014: BEYOND THE BORDERS 

Beyond the Borders 
It’s time to step outside your comfort zone, outside your borders, or outside of your own country or culture. Tell us about the books that transported you to a different world, taught you about a different culture, and/or helped you step into the shoes of someone different from you. What impacted you the most about this book? What books would you recommend to others who are ready or not ready to step over the line? In essence, let’s start the conversation about diversity and keep it going! 


DO NOT POST YOUR GIVEAWAY LINKS IN THIS LINKY!  PLEASE REFER TO THE SEPARATE GIVEAWAY LINK IT UP HERE.

  7. I have already added several diversity themed books to my TBR shelf this morning and left a couple pretty lengthy comments on blogs that went above and beyond in featuring these books.

  13. This is my favorite topic of the week too. I am going to start a new Travel the World Through Books reading challenge because the host of the challenge I was doing is no longer blogging. I'm #77 in the linkup, hope you'll stop by and let me know if you're interested! :)

  15. Not a blog post, but partially in honor of diverse books, today's featured review is the 1993 Octavia E. Butler novel, "Parable of the Sower."
