  1. Came across your blog. Went to visit my daughter in Sununding, The Gambia. She has been in the Peace Corps for 2 years. Stories From The Gambia: Peace Only by Tene Redaja Kelly coming out in late 2008. Photos and stories. The story “Rokia” is a must read for all human beings. Let me know what you think.

  2. Great idea! I just came across your blog, it is admirable you want to promote reading books by African writers. My friends and I have started a book club in hopes to read books mostly by African writers. Our first book club pick is by Ethiopian-American writer The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears Mengistu The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears. Dianw is a young writer who is also teaching at Georgetown University in Washington. He has received great reviews and awards for his book.

  3. I LOVE the book Hugo Cabret. I was crying during school reading it. I think it’s the BEST book i’ve ever read!!!!!!!

  4. I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in your Africa Reading Challenge a couple of years ago. Now that I have moved from Nairobi to Islamabad I thought I would set up a South Asia Reading Challenge. I’d love you to join in, although I know it’s not part of your beat.
