Ms. Meltingpot loves books like a fat boy loves cake. I love to read them. I love to write them. When I enter a bookstore or library I swoon. And while I’ll read just about any genre if it’s a good story, I am particularly interested in books that feature characters of diverse backgrounds. Black, White, Jewish, Jamaican, Asian? I’m not picky, I just want to read books that show me something different. Something that tastes like the Meltingpot. Something different from what often makes it to the front row of the bookshelf in the bookstores.

If  you feel the same way, check out these reviews I’ve written for some of my meltingpot literary favorites. Happy Reading!

    This is the perfect site for anybody who wishes to understand this topic.
    You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic which has been written about for a long time.
    Great stuff, just wonderful!
