Black Kindle - Top 100 African American Books of 2011 - Part Two

Number 106 
It is also so good to be back at my beloved and scrumptious library.  I know the sweetness of my words sound corny, but I love volunteering there.  I help so many people find great books and so many African Americans find books.  It makes my heart beat a book a minute, slowly and convincingly, feeling, holding and touching a book; many books and more books.  I’m back to working one evening a week and will surely increase it to two or three.  Oh, what love! What joy! What kind of drugs am I on!!!
Here’s the rest of Black Kindle - Top 100 Books by African American.  Damn that felt pretty good:
