#SipandRead: Between The World And Me
The #Sipandread photo series is inspired by the beauty of book covers and the amateur photography I post on social media. Plus I drink coffee in the morning and (sometimes) wine in the evening. Enjoy!

I can tell by this photo I was only a few pages into this book. Now that I have read it, the book has a rainbow of tabs sticking out of the side, making various quotes and ideas. This was the first book featured for my co-facilitated online book club, Bookish Angst. I had no idea what I was getting into and we still have a book club learning curve to conquer. As for the contents of Coates' thoughts to his young son on racism, manhood, and blackness? Well, that's a lot to unpack. I found his work to be somber, yet powerful. And well worth the read.
