Updates on writing and reading

It is fifteen minutes to three in the afternoon and I’ve had my second cup of coffee.

I woke up with one goal in mind today; to get notebooks and pens from Miniso at Sarit Centre and here’s what I got- 3 writing books, 3 pocket notebooks and 4 pens.

I also passed by the TextBook Centre store and picked two books to read and had to walk out so fast because if I stayed longer I would have spent more money on books and stationery.

I am writing more this week and looking forward to going through the final draft before settling on a publication plan for mid May. Until then, have a great week.

Books to Read in 2016

I love reading books but not as much as buying them.
It is a known fact to my family that I judge supermarkets here in Kenya by how spacious their stationery and books aisle is. If it has a floor dedicated to books and stationery, it’s the best. I am yet to find that kind of supermarket though.
So, there was an offer on Books first where I buy most of my books,and this is my to-read list of 2016:


Before I Forget by Andre Brink
Ancestral Vices by Tom Sharpe
A way through the mountains by Elizabeth McGregor
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
Tiger Hills by Sarita Mandanna
Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
The Bird Woman by Kerry Hardie
Vienna Blood by Frank Tallis
The Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart
Foreign Fruit by Jojo Moyes
