National Black Book Festival


Friday, July 2, 2010

I have been told, and there are some times when I feel that dark message inside my soul telling me to give this blog up and do some serious writing of the Great African American Novel, but, it’s not working, it’s just not working. I have always had a love of reading and books from the time my grandmother walked me to library. We were poor and living in a poor neighbor, and there were times I did miss a meal or two, but when I was with my grandmother, I did not care what I ate, slept on or lived, as long as my grandmother and books were with me.

She grew up poor in Athens, Georgia and moved to Washington, DC when she married my grandfather. To keep from turning this into a “Black History” story, suffice to say, I was raised by her. Even though we had very and I mean very little, my life was always, always complete when she was around. I prayed all the time to keep her here on earth because I did not think I could go on living. I gave birth to her first great-grand child and she lived loved enough to meet and hold her. She also read to my daughter just as I did and at times (My kid is 21 years old and in college), my kid still ask me, every once in a while, to read “Junie B. Jones,” because of my funny voice.

I guess I’m going on and on. My message, I’m not giving the hell up!,” People may not buy my subscription to this blog, but I’m not about to give up and not bring to every single person I can, books, books, e-books, Kindle, iPad, books and more books. Hey, books below:
