    I haven’t tried any real challenges yet, apart from one on GoodReads, and I didn’t actually make the 100 books I thought I would. I like your 10 favourites for 2010. Makes me think what I would put on my list!

    Very good list. I see your bias towards Kwakye is showing 🙂

      Thanks Kinna but I think Ben Kwakye deserves such a huge mention. lol! I’m hoping you grasp your hand on his second book – ‘The Sun by Night’.

    What a great list. I’m happy to see two that I’ve read and loved, and want to get my hands on a few more!


  5. This is a great list! Most of these books are new to me – thanks for bringing them to my attention! Happy new year & hope 2011 is another good year for reading for you.


    • Geosi says:

      Thanks for those kind and encouraging words. I am just from your blog and I also like what your doing. In fact, I’m even tempted to join the post a day challenge organized by wordpress but I’m not sure. Happy reading in 2011 too.


  6. Such a great list of books.


  7. How i wish Half of a yellow sun by Chimamanda could be #1. I love her story and looking forward to write that better. Im a up and coming writer, see my blog: http://www.justusdanielbooks.wordpress. Nice list!


    • Geosi says:

      I also loved half of a Yellow Sun but note that my list is not in any particular order. I certainly know that Chimamanda is a good writer and there is more to learn from her. I will be visiting your blog o.k. Cheers!

    Just like yourself I stumbled across J M Coetzee while in a library. The man is genius and it manifests in his writing. In an attempt to read writers around the world I read Achebe’s classic
    Things Fall Apart last month.
    My goal in 2013 is to develop a more focused TBR list.
    Thanks for the wonderful site Geosi.
