Readers tell us about your favorite and not-so-favorite books. Authors and Publishers share information about your books. This forum is open to everyone interested in discussing anything related to books by, or about, Black people.
This board's purpose is to facilitate the exchange of opinions, ideas, facts, and information as it relates to Black people. This forum is also known as “Cyniques’ Corner,” named for our most important contributor.

Please share any feedback, comments, or critiques you have about any aspect of AALBC.com’s website. We’ll read all the comments and do what I can to make AALB.com the best site it can be—thanks to your help.
Amazon poses a threat to independent booksellers and they are not going away anytime soon. As Amazon continue to gain near monopolistic power we must devise ways to continue to thrive. Here we share articles to help understand what Amazon is doing and how we can adapt.
Participation is easy. Discussions, for each book, are held in our Book Club Discussion forum. Please feel free to join us anytime; conversations are not limited to the month that a book has been selected. Our online book club was started in 1998.
