The Next Book I'll Read: A Question of Freedom

It's been a while since I picked up an actual printed book and read it from beginning to end. I was stuck on Michael Eric Dyson books for a minute and then I realized how I can't stand reading. But throw the same content up on a blogpost or an article online from a viable newspaper and I'll read it. All that aside, the ONLY reason I'm going to read A Question of Freedom is because my boy wrote it. Otherwise, I probably would not give a you-know-what. And that is NOT meant to downplay the quality of the book at all because he's a great person, has a great story to tell, and is a great writer. It's moreso a statement of my disdain for reading anything that does not exist in a hip-hop magazine, instructional manual, required text/reading for a course, or on a website/blog - which makes sense considering how I can barely read and/or write as this blog can attest to.

Nevertheless, sometime between tomorrow when the book is released and next week when he has his book signing in D.C., I will be copping the book. If you have time, check out his website at http://rdwaynebetts.com/ and get to know a little more about him and the book. And if you need a reason to buy it do so because I recommended it, not necessarily because you want to. THANKS!
