As the founder of BTB, I've been a member since inception, June, 2003. My love of reading is what led me to start a book club. But the bond, friendships, sisterhood, diversity, good times and LOVE amongst my beautiful sisters is what keeps me going. My favorite author is E. Lynn Harris. May he forever rest in peace. #wewillalwaysspeakyourname

E. Lynn said it best in Invisible Life: "luck runs out but blessings never do." Thank you ladies of BTB for being a blessing to me!
