It almost took a century to be published, but I am so glad this book is now available in print. It‘s the first non-fiction book I‘ve read that has a first-hand account of the Middle Passage and being enslaved in the American South. Kudos to Hurston for recognizing the importance, and documenting, Cudjo‘s story. The audiobook was extremely well done, and I highly recommend reading in that format!

Trying to come back to participating in the #WeeklyForecast now that the number of books I read in a week is climbing again!

Two of these are for my last 3 remaining #Booked2022 prompts, #blackcentricimprint and #writtenbyajournalist. Shara Wheeler is my fun read for the week.

Librariana I really enjoyed I Kissed Shara Wheeler and I hope you do as well! 😊💜 3w

This is an ambitious memoir. Sellers covers a variety of topics and balances broader concepts with small details. His writing style is engaging, but his narration is only okay. He‘s connected to Civil Rights history, but lives with anxiety. He and his wife just celebrated their twins‘ 3rd bday. But it was touch-and-go for a while.

BarbaraTheBibliophage And I‘ll probably pick a prompt for #nonfictionchallenge2022 but right now I can‘t decide! @Riveted_Reader_Melissa 9mo
Cinfhen I have this one but I‘m still not really compelled to listen🎧 #MaybeSomeday 9mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen I hear that. My reading goal this year is less challenges and more mood reading. I‘m just not feeling all the planning!! (Of course, I‘m still doing three challenges and finishing up one from 2022 … so we shall see …) 🤪 9mo
