Book Reading Goal : Week 21

Just in case some think I have lost my way on the book reading goal. Not at all. The silence is that apart from a long reading pile of recent reports on Zambia and some academic papers, I stumbled into two huge theological books by John M Frame which between then have 2000 pages! In parallel to that I have also been two slightly technical books on International Law and Economics. Now eventually these books will be finished - though at clearly slower pace if I am not fall behind in my reading goal! But next week I hope to resume regular updates!


Talakata - The Tears of AfricaSo where are in this week 21. Well since the last update in Week 15, I completed and reviewed Talakata by Princess Zindaba Nyirenda. It was of course quite interesting reading the book. Bizarrely, I have had no comments on it from readers?!! Has no one read the book yet?  I did get a comment from the author - which was simply :"cheers...mukwai". Actually, the legendary James Mwape kindly emailed "You are really a true Zambian, my friend. Please, keep up the great work!". So there you go, James approves, that settles it! 


Naked God: The Truth About God ExposedI have also this week finished reading Naked God. A short book that addresses the simple question : Is there a God? My wife picked this up on one of the conference she attended and I thought before adding it to our library I quality assure it :)  A useful reading for those grappling with the same question. Also great to give as a gift to others. 


Where this leaves us with respect to the reading goal is that I have 30 books left to read in 27 weeks, but I am not panicking - those four complex books will come good for me at some point!
