We Read Too App is Great

We Read Too. It’s the name of an app to help readers discover books about and written by minorities.

While everyone a few years ago was posting on social media that We Need Diverse Books and doing NOTHING to actually accomplish that goal some people were actually coming up with ideas and solutions. Thus, the app.

The app acts as a directory of books with what we call diverse authors an characters. Basically anyone who is non-white. Like myself. Personally I’d like to read more books with Latino characters or authors. But those books are massively outnumbered in the marketplace by booms mostly written by old white guys. Which isn’t inherently bad. It just is what it is.
