Okay, y'all...this was fabulous! Nothing like what I was expecting when I began viewing the video. By the end, I was doubled-over with laughter. Thanks for addressing this need in such a creative manner.

Be blessed!

Thanks, Kendra! But all the credit goes to Carleen Brice. She's the one who started this movement. I think she's doing a wonderful job of drawing attention to this issue ; ).

What fun it was to watch this video! I'm one of those people who didn't even KNOW there WAS a separate section! I'll be sure to look next time I go to a book store. We don't have any close to us but will watch for my chance. Thanks.

Pamela,

Hey! Thanks for stopping by. And not all bookstores have a separate section for AA fiction but. We have two bookstores in my town a Walden Books and a B Daltons. Walden segregates but B Daltons doesn't. My favorite bookstore, Books & Company, is in the next town and doesn't have a AA section. I've worked in libraries all my life and personally think all books should be shelved by genre.
