SABA- Susanna's Africa Book Awards
Since I have very little homework today (to give you an idea of how rare this is, think about the frequency of a solar eclipse) I have decided to use my free time to compile a list of must-read books.
Ever since my family started preparing for our trip to Kenya (December 2004) I have had a mild obsession with books about Africa. Since we are adopting a child from this continent, it is not far-fetched to say that my craving for these stories is all the more prevalent. So here are a few that I have either read or plan to read in the future:
The Flame Trees of Thika- Elspeth Huxley
Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight- Alexandra Fuller
The No. 1 Lady's Detective Agency series- Alexander McCall Smith
Things Fall Apart- Chinua Achebe (I'm reading this one now and so far it's great!)
Born Free- Joy Adamson
Out of Africa- Karen Blixen
My Life With the Chimpanzees- Jane Goodall
I know that there are many more enthralling Africa stories out there I have yet to discover. Please, any suggestions will be much welcomed!
