    1. Ah! Novel ke? Those are Macmillan Primary English textbooks you are writing about. That means you are very good at cramming. Well-done ma.

  11. All of the above and more.
    My favourite among those four would be Without A Silver Spoon.
    Ure Chokwe!
    I read books by Enid Blyton, Astrid Lindgren, Hans Christian Andersen, Lewis Carroll, CS Lewis.
    Books in the African Writers Series written by- Chinua Achebe, Flora Nwapa, Cyprian Ekwensi, Buchi Emecheta, Peter Abraham etc
    Practically all books in the Pacesetter series and more... I love reading even though it’s getting harder to indulge nowadays.
    One item my bucket list is to have a library in my home with all the books of my childhood and more for my children to gorge on.
    God willing, they will imbibe the reading culture whilst young like I did.

    7. Yes Kidjo, I was a literature student but not an art student but science. Totally hated geography so I opted for literature.
