Q:  Do you read books by diverse authors or books with diverse characters (such as LGBT, ethnic minorities, religious minorities, etc)? If yes, do you have any book recommendations? Do you visit indie and/or used bookstores? Also, have you ever worked in any?
A: I do. The best book I can recomend with diversity is Dante and Aristotle and the Secrets to the Universe. EPIC read!!! I love any and all bookstores, but have not worked in one. I would though!

    1. James Patterson's books are a mixed bag; some are entertaining, and the rest are duds.

  10. My father in law loves James Patterson - always a great gift idea! Lol! I think diversity is fairly common in the genres I read but I admit some authors are better at including diverse characters than others.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
