The 100 book reading challenge was a success. It started rocky hence the year 2020.
It was a REAL challenge this year. I started a college class and it was at times difficult to get books as we sheltered in place.
Not to be swayed, other plans were executed. I still was able to utilize the Flint Public Library with 44 books.
Then I remembered that the city of Flint has a number of pop-up libraries. I chose the Mary McLeod Bethune Library with 34 books.
As it got closer to the end of the year, I bought 17 books which were donated to the Bethune Library. I also found seven books at home to complete the task of 102 books read.
Some interesting facts from the readings:
- One of the characters in “Ms. Marvel: Generation Why”, was named Kamala.
- Enjoyed a book from FPL, that was worth purchasing, “We are called to be a Movement.”
- “Slam Dunk” was written by the daughter of Jackie Robinson.
- “Benjamin Banneker, Scientist was written by Ms. Garnet Jackson who was an elementary school teacher in Flint MI.
Other interesting facts were authors, Louisa May Alcott, Ruth Bell Graham (RBG), Robert Louis Stevenson, Charles Dickens and the most famous of all, Dr. Seuss.
