The U.S. celebrates Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) in May. In honor of this celebration, I collected books with APAHM-related themes as well as authors of Asian-Pacific heritage. Check out my 2014 shelfie. What books deserve a spot on the shelf?
You can click on the covers, visit Jorie’s Store on Amazon, and shop for some great reading. Making purchases at Jorie’s Store funds future giveaways! 🙂
