Lit Tidbits: Black History Month Repeats

What did I ever do before bookish apps like Goodreads and Shelfari? How did I keep up with what books I've already read? If you are anything like me, your memory is simply not good enough. So sometimes within first couple chapters, it dawns on me...I read this book before! Hence, below are books that I happily added to my TBR for Black History Month, then quickly realized it was a repeat read! Allow me to still spotlight them.
