Just to let the seven people following this blog know, Mr. Coates is asking the Horde to take part in a book discussion. Hopefully I'll be able to keep up with it this time.
What we're reading this time is The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander. With luck your local library owns a copy, or else is available through your library's Overdrive eBook lender.
Discussions should open up on September 17, so we've all got a few days to get some reading done and take some notes.
