One thing about moving and having to deal with boxes is that it reminds you just how much junk you manage to hoard over the years but on the flip side, one also finds things long forgotten. Treasures if you may. This evening scrambling through one of the many boxes, I found this book where I used to list books I had finished reading in 2004. This was not even the whole list because I read ‘Postmortem’ by Patricia Cornwell in July after I had just moved to moved Cape Town and Chantal van Steijn introduced me to this awesome Writer. This means by mid 2004, I had already read 24 books.
Currently I am on about a book a month or a book in 2 months which I must improve on but with school and a demanding job, it is tricky. The trend will steadily improve though because some of you have asked that I do more book reviews.
FYI – I am currently reading ‘I write what I like’ by the legend, Steve Bantu Biko, courtesy of Dr Simon Tati Mangcwatywa. Don’t worry mate, I’ll look after your prized possession well. Biko? You may ask. Aren’t you too late in the century for that? You should have read that ages ago! I know…Bear with me here! My own 2015 ala ‘post-democracy’ review of the book will follow
