Diversity on the Shelf: Links and Resources
Inspired by the POC Reading Challenge

The Diversity on the Shelf 2014 Reading Challenge starts in 3 days and counting!! (Sign up here for 2015)
If you are new to making a conscious effort towards diversifying your bookshelf and need a few suggestions check out these links I have collected.  By the way they are not in any particular order and some of them are not very recent but still useful.
 This list will grow and change as I find more resources, so check back every once in awhile.
