Guilt, guilt, guilt … at not posting recently!
I come home, relax a bit with a couple of books, but then feel too tired, so end up just checking email, and worse still, playing Spider solitaire! Not terribly constructive I admit!
I feel I really should comment about the GhanaBlogging meet-up with Ethan Zuckerman of Global Voices, among many others, which took place on 25 July. Great to finally meet him, especially as I remember hearing about his work with Geek Corps (quite a long time ago), and currently follow his blog regularly.
Then the Booker longlist for 2010 was announced this week. I do admit that when I was working at British Council Ghana, (when there were libraries there – but alas no more) , this was a signal for making sure that some of the best of contemporary UK fiction would be ordered. I am sad to say I don’t do this now, but at least there are a few titles that I may put on my personal wish list and/or bring up for future selection at Accra Book Club.
And just this morning, got a tweet from a colleague about the new improved Kindle so naturally I had to add that to my wish list, and delete the earlier ones! I wonder if anyone wants to give me a slightly expensive, somewhat indulgent, present???
