BookBlerd, Author and Content Creator

I'm Shawneda, childhood bookworm transformed into a lifelong bookblerd. Reading books as a child protected my empathy, showed me a world bigger than my home, and empowered me to get the help needed to overcome the challenges encountered as a teen in foster care.

This is a dedicated space to connect with me and other Shawneda Readers. Whether you receive your books from your favorite retailer or the GIG PowHer Book Box, this site is for you.
