May in Review, Projections for June

Currently I am in Kumasi and I can at least update my blog. May was a busy month for me in terms of my professional life. My reading was somewhat limited and my blogging was seriously affected. In all I read four books and reviewed two. However, I kept my Monday Proverbs going by scheduling all the post. I love this feature. Sometimes I find on my phone that a blog has just been published.

  1. The Secret Destiny of America by Manly P. Hall
  2. Searching by Nawal El Saadawi
  3. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
  4. Every Man is a Race by Mia Couto

I also brought you updates - the non-professional side - of my travels in the Bia District of the Western Region. First I told you about what I would be doing in this blog post. Then I introduced you to the village where I would be staying, Kwamebikrom (or for a direct transliteration: a certain Kwame's town), in another post. Just last week I updated you on the chills and thrills I have encountered on this field trip. I would  be bringing you the final part of this journey in days to come.

June would might also be dull as the data collected would need to be inputed and analysed. However, once I am in Accra I would be here more frequently than when I was away. I would be reviewing the two books I have already read. Currently, I am reading Shadows by Chenjerai Hove and enjoying it. 

Again, in May I celebrated two years of promoting African Literature. I have come this far and would not be turning my back on this non-paying but interesting job. I would only entreat my readers to bear with me as I go through this slow period in June. Though I was away, May was the month I had one of my highest visits to my blog. Thanks to you all.
