Bookshelf #1

I’m ready to tackle my first shelf, which poses a bit of a problem. The only books I haven’t read are ones I’m not exactly in the mood for, because they are all very serious and/or depressing. I thought about going out of order, but that would probably be too difficult to keep track of. I’m going to read The Education of a British-Protected Child: Essays by Chinua Achebe, because it will be valuable, and I know I’ll learn from it. I teach Things Fall Apart and some of his short stories, so I’ll be able to use parts of it in my lessons. I’m not even sure this book belongs on this shelf. It’s a collection of essays, but it’s kind of a memoir, and I included memoir with fiction for some reason. I’ll probably rearrange at some point.

Books on this shelf I’ve read:
Douglas Adams The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah Chain-Gang All Stars
Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah Friday Black
Dante Alighieri Inferno
Alaa Al Aswany The Yacoubian Building
