TNS had an idea a few weeks back to think about reading something together as a blog community. A book club of sorts. This post is for people to say what they're already reading this summer (related or not) and to suggest some books for a list TNS can put up in a week or so.
It'd be cool if we could volunteer some books that might be helpful in light of past debates on the blog: hair politics and beauty standards, hip-hop, Obama (and Af-Am representation in leadership), the n-word, and white liberalism. It's also a space for us to move towards some new territory that hasn't been covered yet. Let everyone know what's on your shelf in the comment thread.
Also, if you do not want to use your name in the comments, please choose a pseudonym so we can avoid having 2 or 3 different posters using the anonymous option.
