Are you tired of all the cliché things you have been doing all year? Try something different from what you have done in the past months. Here is an idea.
Grab a good book and go to the library. Geek is the new cool. You could destress by going down the memory lane. Do you still have copies of your Things Fall Apart, Hamlet, Sweet Valley High, Babysitters Club Series, Romeo and Juliet, Cinderella, Harry Potter, No Sweetness Here and the rest? Take them to a library near you and dig in.
If you want to do the more contemporary ones, there are varieties to choose from. Well, you may not find them in the libraries so you may want to pass by a book shop first.
You may want to read the classics- Helen of Troy, Odyssey – or the autobiographies. Whatever your preference is, pick it and read, or you cannot read from a book anymore? Carry your kindle, your tablet or whatever device you decide to read from.
And note that as a matter of fact, if the movie is good, the book is best. You could read the print version of a movie you have watched. Give us feedback afterwards.
Let’s whip- up our reading habit. Remember you could read 100 pages of a book in a day, but now you only read a page on a blog? Let’s go back to it before the year ends.
Find below a list of libraries in Accra. We will update it week by week. There are also a list of bookshops listed. If you know of any we haven’t listed here, please let us know. You could even send us a picture when you spot one in town 🙂
