Booksellers on breaking up with books

Recently, I've found myself slogging through a whole host of books that really didn't click with me. From stylistic woes, to too-dense prose, from boring plots, to maybe just a personal thing, I've spent the last month reading books I didn't like. I picked up each title expecting to love it, yet every page started to feel like a chore. As a result, I read less often, prolonging my agony. Then one day I was lamenting about my latest read to a friend and she asked the great question I'd failed to ask myself: "Why are you still reading that book if you hate it?"

It's 2016. We Need Diverse Books

Diverse Books

If you follow trends in publishing, you'll know that the industry has recently woken up to the fact that minorities of all sorts are under-represented in books. We at Book Culture feel that this awakening is long overdue, and we hope that by promoting diverse books, we will encourage the industry to produce more of them. Below are a few of the picture books you can find on our shelves that feature characters who are minorities.
