Chronic Bibliophilia Blog
Chronic Bibliophilia chronicles my journey as I endeavor to become a ridiculously well-read human being. Part of that journey includes probing what I mean by “well-read”. Having reviewed countless lists, books about books, awards lists, and literary prescriptions, I am disappointed but not surprised by the lack of diversity represented among the “must-read” lists. When we, as bookworms and consumers of words, embark upon a book, we are listening to an other’s voice. We are learning an other’s point of view. We are expanding our minds, embracing our world, and acknowledging our differences. We need to push our boundaries and seek broader voices. Through 2 to 3 posts each week, this blog provides reflections, reviews, and recommendations from a reading list focused on supporting and highlighting the voices that continue to face suppression. I believe that this project has changed not just what I read, but how I read and how I think. I hope you’ll join me on my literary odyssey.
