Welcome to Diverse Reading (formerly Diverse Shelves) Same Great club, New Name! Here we will focus on making your bookshelves more diverse. Our mission is to diversify bookshelves by having book discussions amongst a diverse audience.
If your bookshelf is not diverse, you are not well read.
We want open conversations on books by authors in every space (genres, themes, topics). Part of being well-read includes reading books by #ownvoices (BIPOC, LGBTQ, etc). While there are no limitations on the types of books and/or authors discussed, we want to consistently dedicate space to amplify #ownvoices. We hope discussions in this space encourage you to try new books outside of your usual reading material.
This is a safe space. While we may not all agree, let’s be respectful and keep an open, healthy dialogue. Reading is reading, do you read a physical paper book? An e-book? An audiobook? You are a reader. To say otherwise is ableist and disregarding someone else’s experience. This is a safe space for all readers. And people, it’s one book love here. ❤️📚🤓
Feel free to open rooms to have book and/or author discussions. Founded by Kelly Lycurgus @kellzisbookedup here on Clubhouse and Instagram. Please follow the club’s Instagram, and Facebook pages @diversereading and Twitter’s page @diverse_reading

Spread love and let people speak 🗣
Let’s allow people to have their fair chance to speak.
Be respectful of each other’s opinions
This is a safe space to discuss all things books. Have fun and share your favorite and least favorite books. Let’s talk books!
Please do not cast judgement or encourage ableism
We want to amplify the love of reading in hardcover, paperback, audiobook, e-book, etc. Reading is reading. Are you an audiobook reader? Are you an e-book or graphic novel reader? You are a reader!
