It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I finished Children of The Tipi by Michael Oren Fitzgerald. Although for a younger reader, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had a chance to learn the values of different American tribes. The book is from NetGalley.
I also finished Too Important to Fail by Tavis Smiley. It's about the problems and solutions in the educational systems for the Black male in our society today.
Now I am reading Lady in Black by Christina Dodd. I am enjoying it. It's been a long time since I've read Christina Dodd. Whenever I read her in the past, I had a wonderful experience. In this one the butler is a lady. She is working with the grandfather and son of the household. The grandfather has suffered a stroke. Meanwhile, there are kidnapping letters coming in the mail. Threatening  to do harm to the grandfather whether he's in a wheel chair or not. The letters are awful. I can't imagine who is sending these notes.

Next I want to read The Incense Game by Laura Joh Rowland. It starts off with a bang. I hated to put it down to read Lady in Black. Anyway, it's in Japan. The story begins with a horrible earthquake. While reading, I literally felt that my body was shaking. That's how real the author paints the picture. Also, want to read Harriet Tubman's 30 Lessons in Leadership and Love and Legacy.
