Do you remember Doret’s profile on W.A.R.?  

"Doret has always loved reading. She’s been a bookseller for almost 10 years and still enjoys connecting people with books they will love. When she started blogging at The Happy Nappy Bookseller over a year ago, she noticed that great books featuring people of color were being ignored. She hopes that the people who visit her store and/or blog can say that they understand reading diversity is a beautiful thing."

Doret has been an invaluable resource to me. While I scour and toil about, hunting for titles to add to my K-12 reading lists — Doret’s like, "been there, done that. Oh, and here’s more, Amy." Really, she is amazing! And Doret’s blog has an enormous list of 21st century, K-12 (inclusive) reading lists, that she graciously sent me – and promises more to come.
