Because I enjoyed her writing so much, one of my "blog alerts" is set for "Alexandra Fuller"and this morning a blog alert e-mail led me to a website inviting people to participate in an African Reading Challenge.
Ethan and I decided to participate in the challenge together and had a lively e-mail conversation deciding which books we would read. We decided on the following:
- I Didn't Do It for You: How the World Betrayed a Small African Nation by Michela Wong
- Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
- The Shadow of Kilimanjaro by Rick Ridgeway
- What is What by Dave Eggers
- Africa: The Next Decade by Arthur Gerstenfeld
- A continent for the Taking: The Tragedy and Hope of Africa by Howard French
