Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! To tell you the truth, I never understood why schools get this day off. Shouldn't we reserve this day to learn about the legacy of Dr. King? Instead, we've relegated it to a bank holiday. Just another day to sleep in. I'm not entirely sure that jives with Dr. King's dream, but whatever.
Speaking of Dr. King, my friend Kaitlin and I had the pleasure of going to the Kadir Nelson event at Nicola's Books in Ann Arbor on Friday night and it was awe-inspiring. He is such a wonderful role model for young people to look up to, imploring the importance of following your dream instead of what will make you the most money.
Check out my recap of the Kadir Nelson event.
Truth be told, I didn't really do much reading this past week. I did start a new audiobook, The Wright 3 by Blue Balliett, but other than that, my reading is kind of at a standstill at the moment. I hate when life gets in the way of my reading.
Check out my current giveaways:
ARC of Hold Fast by Blue Balliett (ends 1/24)
ARC of Love Water Memory by Jennie Shortridge (ends today)
