Africa Reading List – Seeking Recommendations

In connection with my Around the World in 80 Books reading project, I have created, as an additional reference point, a reading list containing the books currently on my TBR with an “Africa” shelving:

The list includes the three books set in Africa I already read in 2019, but none read prior to this year.

If anybody has recommendations for any of the countries not yet represented on my TBR, that would be phantastic (double extra brownie points for books by women authors).  Those countries are:

  • Burundi
  • Cameroon
  • Cape Verde
  • Chad
  • Comoros Islands
  • Republic of Congo (as opposed to Democratic Republic of Congo, for which I already have several books)
  • Djibouti
  • Equatorial Guinea
  • French Southern Territories
  • Gambia
  • Guinea-Bissau
  • Ivory Coast
  • Madagascar
  • Malawi
  • Maldives
  • Mauritius
  • Mayotte
  • Namibia
  • Niger
  • Réunion
  • Seychelles
  • South Sudan (as opposed to Sudan)
  • Swaziland
  • Uganda
  • Western Sahara

All recs welcome of course, but I’m finding I have a surprising amount of books on my Africa TBR already, for more countries than I’d have thought before I started compiling this list (particularly, though, for Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa), so I’m mainly trying to fill in the blanks at this point.  Thank you all in advance!

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Hobbit – Performed by Andy Serkis

Like its magnificent sequel, The Hobbit is, I think, many things to many people: the first exposition of the universe that would become Middle-earth; prelude to The Lord of the Rings; a bite-sized visit to Middle-earth whenever you don’t feel up to the full blow of the War of the Ring(s); one of the most […]

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings – Performed by Andy Serkis

In another online community, we recently talked about the new Andy Serkis Lord of the Rings recordings.  Well, it turns out that the pull of The Ring is still mighty strong, for however much it may have been destroyed in Mount Doom. I had barely gotten my hands on these audios and I found I […]
