We are a group of black women who love to read, want to read more and meet like-minded women.
We are here to inspire women to read, share literature, fellowship, and encourage others in the joy of reading.
We are an eclectic group of women and so are our reading selections!

In answer to a frequently asked question: "Do I have to be Black to be a member?
Nope. All are welcome, but we want to and will keep our focus on the uplifting of Black women.

..Super Staff Pick

Every month, we pick a title that we believe is deserving of extra attention. The books are available for a 20% discount via the store, email or the phone.

Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart

This is a fun book based on a real but little-known female sheriff.

Threatened by a silk merchant and his cronies, Constance Kopp won't sit still and wait for some man to take care of the problem. She jumps in despite threats to her and her sisters. I enjoyed it immensely.
