#LetsDiscuss2020 – Am I a Politically Correct Reader? – #DiscussionSunday #10.

With the #BlackLivesMatter protests taking place across the globe, together with June being Gay Pride Month, I noticed that many bloggers have been putting up posts with their top ten books by authors of color, or their top ten LGBTQ+ books.

Tomorrow, I go back to work. I've been home since mid-March, but was furloughed as of April 1.
