Every so often, my books have a discussion, behind my back, about what I should read. At least it seems that way. My reading is coming together in a pleasant, if unexpected, way.
My first read of the year was West With the Night. It took place in Africa.
My third book was Great Expectations.
One of the books I am currently reading takes place in Africa and involves a white man reading Great Expectations to his class of black children.
How’s that for the circle of a bookish life? It doesn’t happen very often to me, but when it does, it feels so cool! I have another book in my TBR about a white woman who marries a black Masai warrior. I suppose I should read it next!
