I wrote a quick memo to Borders the other day - regarding stocking books with more diverse colors on the covers - as well as authors (of course).
I was limited on content - so I had to cut some of it, their form only allowed a certain amount of characters and I was sick, so I had a hard time even finding that form.
Anyway, the letter is here - yes, you need to click on the link. For some reason, Blogger does not let me past anything I've copied. I can only upload and don't know how to upload anything but pictures. Sometimes I accidently upload a video, but I usually promptly forget how I did it. (figures)
I encourage others to continue writing letters and voicing your concerns about the lack of diversity in even our bookstores.
