I am not African American. I have no African heritage or ancestry as far as I know. However, I have been for some time interested in reading books set in the various nations of Africa or books written by African authors. In fact, I’ve been collecting ideas for this reading and links to reviews of African-flavored books for over a year. So today, in honor of Bloggiesta, I decided to pull those lists out my drafts folder, put them onto separate pages of their own, and share them.

Obviously, these lists are not complete. I will be reading and gathering ideas for reading and adding books and links to reviews for . . . as long as I remain interested in the project. If you have any suggestions, blog reviews, or other information to add to my Africa pages, please leave a comment. If you’re looking for a book to read about Africa or about a specific African country, check out my Reading Through Africa pages.

This is going to be fun.
