April Reads; I love reading

My April reads
Sometime back I did a post on my love for reading and how my dad inspired it all. I find reading as a therapeutic exercise and with everything happening around me, I need to pause every now and then to absorb things around me and stock take and books help me do that alot. I remember a quote from Ben Carson's Think Big.
It is chiefly through books that we enjoy intercourse with superior minds, and these invaluable means of communication are in the reach of all. In the best books, great men talk to us, give us their most precious thoughts, and pour their souls into ours.

I don't think I need to explain further but to introduce what I am reading this April.

200 puzzles including megasudokus, how cool?

1. Sudoku Puzzle which I got on the streets for Ksh 200; I skipped lunch for this baby and it shuts off all those bend over songs in the matatu and also keeps my love for numbers alive.

2. Chimamanda's Americana which I got after finishing Half of the Yellow Sun (ok i confess I didnt finish it, after Ugwu went to war and took part in raping a girl, I lost love for him and even though he came back, the book wasnt the same for me -  need to stop connecting with characters on that level)

The Right to Legal Capacity in Kenya

3. The right to legal capacity in Kenya is a recently launched study by Mental Disability Advocacy Centre and it forms a foundation for two projects I am about to dive into and also helps with the work i do with MMMF. Oooh did I say, it is autographed by one of the authors?

#Nomoresheet Challenge
4. 40 days to starting over by Juanita Bynum is a 40 day challenge daily devotion book off her No more sheets series. I began it on Monday and I am already thoroughly challenged, can't wait to see what the next 37 days will have in store. I am reading this alongside my Bible which is the one book that never goes out of season for me.

What are you reading this month?

  1. Your love for books is inspiring! I wish I had time to read this month, but I'm looking to read up on more of Chinua Achebe's books. Only read "Things Fall Apart".

    1. You should try A man of the people and also try other local and continental authors, I think Ngugi wa Thiong'o from Kenya has amazing reads too. Tell me how it goes.

      Sending love and light.
