during December 2016 I participated in the #DiversityDecBingo, a read-a-thon encouraging us all to read more books with diverse characters.
I had a lot of fun participating in this read-a-thon so I was really excited to see that they decided to make year round reading challenges to continue promoting diverse books and authors.
