23 of April: Book Day

On Book Day let’s celebrate all the writers we know and those we don’t know.

Today, as we celebrate International Book Day, I would like to know more about books that have influenced your life mindset.

I can’t recall which was the first book I read. But what I surely remember is that my parents read a lot of storybooks to my sister and me. I enjoyed this. I also remember we had records of some of these books.

Years later, I started to read on my own. Since then, I do my best to read as many books as possible, but I feel that I should read more. Toni Morrison and Audre Lorde are two female writers that have influenced and shaped my thoughts as a black woman; however, I continue to read many others that had been recommended by friends or are listed to be read.

Currently, I am reading The Handmaid’s Tale, written by Margaret Atwood and Sensuous Knowledge by Minna Salami.

Do you remember the first book you read? Which female writer has influenced you?

“Books are a form of political action. Books are knowledge. Books are reflection”.
