What a difference a month makes. The bookish year began well with January’s reading and adventures. But it proved difficult combining bookish pursuits into a completely hectic February. It was all work and projects. I’m involved in two interesting projects; one about literacy, the other on social media and Ghana’s 2012 elections. I will talk more about these in March. I’ve been gone from this blog for too long and I do miss it.
I managed to read only 2 books in February: And Now You Can Go by Vida Vendela and Glorious Nemesis by Ladislav Klima. I loved the Klima book.
I’m still working my way through Sudden Fiction International: 60 Short Short Stories edited by Robert Shapiro and James Thomas. I also started reading Contemporary African Short Stories edited by Chinua Achebe and C.L. Innes.
My plans for March 2012 are:
- Ramp up my reading
- Catch up with reviews
- Celebrate this blog’s 2 year anniversary
- Participate in The Reading Life’s Irish Short Story Week
- Join the readalong of Fernando Pessoa’s The Book of Disquiet.
The selected reading pool for March is:
- Dubliners by James Joyce
- Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham
- The Book of Chameleons by Jose Eduardo Agualusa
- Omon Ra by Victor Pelevin
- Evening is the Whole Day by Preeta Samarasam
- The Word Tree by Teolinda Gersao
- Contemporary African Short Stories edited by Chinua Achebe and C.L. Innes
- Sudden Fiction International: 60 Short Short Stories edited by Robert Shapiro and James Thomas
