Hey book worms,
I was reading an article that said lovers of literature should not be referred to as worms, but as book dragons.
In which case,
Hello Book Dragons!
In 2018 I was able to read 38 books. Which wasn’t so bad for me. This year my goals are a bit different but still the same.
1. Read a few books from the Man Booker Selection and other Literature prizes.
I usually read Caine Prize for African Writing scripts but I am hoping to expand into more literature awards in the new year.
2. Discover more authors of color.
I’ve focused a lot of African Literature but a field I haven’t discovered fully is the world of African American Authors. This year I am looking forward to encountering more of their works.
3.Explore more Authors and Selections from Latin America.
This is one area I can say I haven’t explored yet honestly. I’ve focused so much on African Literature I almost sidelined everyone else. This year I’m hoping to discover more Latin American Authors and indulge!
4. Read more African authors.
I noticed I read a lot of authors I know, and I don’t usually experiment much. This year, I want to experience authors from Rwanda and Egypt and Zambia..all the countries I haven’t explored.
My goodreads target is set at one book ( I know) but in reality I want to get at least 39-40 books down.
What are your reading goals looking like for the new year?
Sending you love.
