Ninjas Be Reading Books (@NBRBooks) is a co-ed twitter book club.
We alternate between reading fiction and non-fiction, with a predominant interest in Black literature. The hashtag #NBRB is used for discussing books, as well as providing news and updates about the book club and book news. You can also follow us on Goodreads.
