I didn’t know whether any of the bookshops in Accra would have copies of
Dan Brown’s The lost symbol on the day it was officially released, so I decided to wait a little bit until Vidya’s got their supply. So last Friday I went by there on the way back to work from the bank, and met the owner and her colleagues sorting out boxes, and putting prices on items received in a recently arrived consignment. Including of course, a limited number of copies of the famous, or infamous, Dan Brown book.
I did buy some other stuff – how could I resist?
So far I am on chapter 20 or so, but it is a long book! Already I can imagine that this will provoke a lot more tourism to Washington, DC! I even recommended it to K who is not the world’s greatest reader, but I suspect he would enjoy it too.
I wish it were possible to just stay at home and finish it, and then pass it on, but I don’t think that would go down well at work!
I do have a lot of other books to read – and I really should get cracking on them. I am becoming a little lazy and/or heading for the web instead!
