Ghana Lit Week 2 Wrap Up (hosted by Kinna)

November 20, 2011

Today is the final day in Kinna’s second annual Ghanaian Literature Week. It was, if I may say so, a huge success! Kinna organized it perfectly, there were a ton of fantastic posts to read, and a great twitter chat as well. To see all posts as part of the project you can check out her central post.

Personally I read a number of books that I had been holding on to in anticipation of this event. I read:

In addition to reading these books, other reviewers convinced me to pick up a number of new Ghanaian books on my Kindle which I look forward to reading and reviewing in the following weeks. I have a few more books with me on this trip, so Ghanaian Literature Week for me may spill over a  bit :) (Beginning with a review of The Chicken Thief by Fiona Leonard tomorrow.) Some of the other Kindle acquisitions may be stored for next year, if I can wait that long…

Thank you again to Kinna of Kinna Reads for hosting this event again, and I look forward to the same next year!

    As we say in Akan in Ghana: Medase O. Thank you for participating so fully in Ghanaian Literature Week. It really would not have been the fun event that it turned out to be without your participation. I will also have post that spill over from the week. Looking forward to your review of Fiona’s book. I will have some goodies for by participants later this week. Thanks again, Amy :).

    It was so great to get a chance to read all your thoughts on the books you read for this week. There was a great mix here, and I kind of got a really good idea of a few books that I want to be able to explore at some point. I do wonder how long you will be able to hold yourself off from reading those Kindle purchases though!

    The Ghost Dilemma book is so fantastically titled! Can’t wait to see what it’s about.

    It was fun and I’m still holding on to a book I wanted to review for the last day but could not. I would also have the spill over effect. lol.

      It seems we all have that issue Nana – too many great books and not enough time!
