    That’s a shame, I was interested but I don’t have a Facebook (haven’t had it since it first launched back in undergrad). Still a great idea 💡

    Hope to see you in Chicago (maybe in the summer) if it takes off and really starts going for live author reads!

    What can I do?? A sista just got paid so I know there's money in there😂

  55. Ema nuel says:

    Are you implying that there are a lot of brown girls who aren't smart?

  56. Jessica Cevidanes says:

    Hey Jouelzy. Congrats on the startup. Is there a book list available? I currently live in Japan on a military base and have to purchase all of my books on line which takes 1-2 weeks to arrive. I don’t want to miss out on the dialogue for each book due to my location.

  57. Caryalyn Jean says:

    I can’t wait to get back to campus to see if my library has either of these books. Hopefully I can save here and there to buy the syllabi too. I’m so excited for you!

  71. Rashida says:

    I love the idea of splitting the denser non fiction into sections. I'm currently in grad school so idk how I'm going to make this work but maybe I can participate over the summer months. I'm excited for you. Also I deleted FB years ago

  74. BriFromTheD says:

    I think the structure of the book club is very fair. I’m not able to add another expense right now but I’m glad I’ll still be able to participate with the general membership and have an option to get a syllabus if my pockets are right at the time 😭

  75. Daniella willis says:

    Sooo ready for this, been apart of the Patron for a couple of months, even though I get paid weird dates so my Patreon might lapse a couple of days, don’t judge me ima always come back lol..
