I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. I spent much of my childhood reading and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. In a world that is so digital and connected, emails and messages buzzing all day long, reading offers me a peaceful time. Books don’t want likes, shares and don’t leave no comment on my performance. Books just are, but they are a gold mine of knowledge. 

After spending few months in Ghana I wanted to start reading more books by African writers. Below, I left a list with books I already read and loved, and another one with books I want to read. Hope you’ll find it useful.
