2011 Quirky Brown Reading Challenge

BrownGirl Book Speak has a very interesting challenge over at her site. It is not necessary about how many books you read, but how many books you discover about the so called "Black Experience".
The challenge will run from January 1 - December 31, 2011. On her site she has a list of authors and titles to chose from, but they are merely suggestions. The only requirement is that they are black authors depicting an offbeat black experience.

The levels are:
I - 2 books
II - 3 books
III - 4 books
IV - more than 5 books.
I will be participating in level 2 and the books I chose to read from her list are:

Giovanni's Room by James Baldwin
32 Candles by Ernessa I. Carter
Substitute Me by Lori Tharps

I'm signed up for this challenge as well. I hope to read 32 Candles this month (or else I will roll it over to February).
