Brown_Karamo_225.jpgKaramo Brown is doubling up this year with the release of his self-titled memoir, Karamo, back in March and more recently a picture book titled I Am Perfectly DesignedIn Karamo, Brown is an inspiration on the page, as he talks about the personal challenges he's faced and how overcoming them has helped him as the culture expert on the hit TV show Queer Eye.

Brown also drew on his personal experience--including fatherhood--for I Am Perfectly Designed, a children's book that Brown wrote with his son Jason that is an ode to being yourself, and the father-son bond. 

Brown hasn't had far to go to find something to read in between takes of his Emmy-award winning show this year, as you'll see from the list of books he's recently enjoyed below.
