I love the concept of Kaleidoscope. Before I talk about why, take a look at their YouTube video about it and see why I am loving this idea.
Do you see what I mean? As a Puerto Rican woman, I appreciate this focus on diversity. You don't see many of it in the book stores and those that are there get overlooked because of the Harry Potter and Hunger Games of the world. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED Harry Potter and Hunger Games, but I also love to read stories that aren't as well known. Some of my favorite books are ones I've randomly found in the clearance section of Barnes and Noble.
This spotlighting of diverse books will help brings these not-so-well-known books to light. It'll also bring some more culture to the books stores. As far as I am concerned, this is a good thing. I just purchased two of the books on their Latin American list, I am so excited about this venture.
Are you excited with me?
