I have abandoned reading for a while, matter off fact i think i even allowed my kindle credit to expire. I need to check on that. Something about bookstores really appeal to me. When i used to live in “the abroad”, in NY i used to spend a lot of time at Barnes and Noble on 18th street, Dubai – kinokuniya, Iraq – Amazon, Lagos -palms lekki bookstore. You get my drift.
I love books, but lately it just looks like life took over and i have been lacking in this area. My fave books to read are generally about women in underdeveloped economies – i know a lot more about women in the Arab world than i would readily admit, human trafficking, drug trafficking, human biographies, romance, etotica (please not fifty shades of grey- thats bdsm), chic lit etc. I however do not read science fiction (i just dont like it). I will pretty much read anything if you catch my drift.
My current reading list:
Bible – i have about 5 different plans running.
Super Freakonomics – i read this book at least once every six months. Its off cuff and helps me think outside the box. Its by Levitt & Dubner.
Border Crossings – Michael Weems
Why men love bitches – Sherry Argov. I read this at least once a year. Ignore the title, its pretty much pointers on how to respect yourself as a woman and ensure you stand for that which you believe in.
Love finds you in Amana, Iowa – Dobson Melanie
Stolen woman – Rae Kimberly
God in A brothel – walker Daniel
As you can see i have an all over the place current reading situation. I guess i have the kindle app to thank for that. I rarely get Nigerian books on kindle, i am not sure why though. I used to frequent literary events in the past and buy actual books, but in recent times, havent done much of that.
What are you currently reading? Any recommendations for me on Nigerian Literature?
Below was our Easter Sunday spread, i simply put all the food in the fridge in the microwave. The frijon is from my mother in law, i learnt about frijon like 2 years ago, not really my cup of tea. So we had grilled honey barbeque chicken wings, air fried sweet potato, yam and plantains, with escovitch fish. Trying to get rid of all the food in my fridge by midweek- because the fridge is too full.
