2019 Diversity Reading Challenge

Even though diversity is all around us, sometimes it can be a bit overlooked. As I’ve earlier years have been participating in various reading challenges, even a few diversity challenge, I’ve decided to host one this year.

I’m not going to make any categories or levels for this challenge, as I want it to be a bit flexible. Read as many books as you feel like reading and yes, it can be children’s books, graphic novels, e-books, non-fiction, audio books, poetry and you-name-it. As it is a diversity reading challenge, it would be mean to exclude some types of reading materials, right?

Now, what is diversity you might ask? What I mean by diversity is, but not limited to;
People of colour/non-caucasian characters/authors
Native Americans and other indigenous people
LGBTQIA
Gender fluid/transgender people
Refugees
Religious minorities
Mental illnesses
Neurodiversity (like ADD and autism)
Feminist themes/issues
Physical/mental disabilities

You'll find a sign up link underneath. I'll also make a page on this blog for the challenge, with monthly link ups where you can post the reviews/books you've read. The challenge starts on January 1st 2019 and will end on December 31st 2019. If you don't have a blog, feel free to sign up with Facebook, Instagram, Goodreads etc. Also, feel free to use books for whatever other challenges you might be participating in. I've often used the same book for several challenges myself, if a book fitted into several.
