#SipandRead: So You Want to Talk About Race
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 was nervous to read this book in public. Weird, right? I wouldn't consider it a "taboo" subject, but I realized that I wouldn't pull it out if I didn't want to be judged. And I never care what other people are thinking of me, especially when it comes to what I'm reading. This book has a lot of news around it and the title puts it all out there. I found myself in a starnge head space around wanting to talk about it and not wanting to talk at all.
Have you ever felt shame around what you're reading?
