 Imani ♥ ☮ It's very telling, I think, that there are few (especially near the top of the list) written by black women authors. And don't get me wrong, some of my favorite books are on my list but I think we need to do better. Whoever you consider "we" to be.

Worthwhile noticing this. The authors shift up and down depending on who everyone is voting for. If folx don't vote, they don't move up. There's also the option to add more books to the list.
