Tiffany’s Reviews

To paraphrase the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. we should all be judged by the content of our character and not the color of our skin and that is the primary vision of Reading in Black & White.

RIBW focuses on what’s written on the pages and not the person who wrote them. Reading in Black & White values diversity and it will be represented on this blog. Books written by authors of all ethnicities, races, and genders will be highlighted and reviewed on this blog.

It is my goal that through Reading in Black & White, readers will not only take a chance and step out of their comfort zone, but that readers will also discover some AMAZING authors they may not know. And, always remember, no matter if you prefer a hardback, paperback, or an e-reader: what’s written in black & white is what’s most important!!!
