I would like to send a big thank you to Sam’s life in books for nominating me! I feel very blessed and appreciate to be chosen for this wonderful award!
As part of the rules for the award, Sam has asked me these questions:
1.What (or who) inspired you to get into blogging?
I loved to write and kept talking about the books I read to my father. He suggested that I start a blog and let people know of my thoughts.
2. Describe your ideal three-course meal?
I’ll have a four cheese spinach dip for starters, a New York steak for the main meal and a cheesecake for desert.
3. Would you consider naming any future children after fictional characters, if so which characters?
I would not. I like names that are historic and have actual meaning to it.

These short book reviews were kindly requested by Lean Stone Book Club.
This is a book written about the benefits of practicing Fasting. As we all may know, fasting has been best known for its religious connections, however; this book discusses matter beyond that. It also emphasizes as a way to losing weight, to cleanse and to heal as well.
In the beginning, I was very intrigued to see what the book was going to offer and it did not disappoint. I particularly liked where the author discusses how fasting can even benefit people with mental health. It was very hard for me to find anything bad about the book and so I recommend it to anyone that wishes to know more about fasting, its history, and benefits.
This history book is a great addition to everything you need to know about Africa. It begins with explaining the three African civilizations, moving on to the Ancient Egyptians and the history of the great cities. The book is filled with references and backdates of many historical facts such as the great Zimbabwe Empire or the Kongo Kingdom followed by the European Colonization.
Africa is a great read on a nice weekend with a generous, warm cup of tea. It takes you back to many years ago and makes you forget about the world you live in now. The literature was very easy to understand, and the pace of the history telling was in a well-formatted way keeping you wanting to know more.
I recommend this book to anyone that likes to read on history and is interested in Africa.

I would like to firstly thank PETER ADEWUMI for graciously nominating me for this lovely award.
I’m always told that I work really hard and that I need to take a break. Having people that recognize that, and nominate me for awards like this, make up for all the work that does go on this website.
As per rules of this award, I am to state 7 facts about myself.
I normally spend quite a considerable amount of time nominating back people however, none have so far made a post or complied to any of the rules that normally goes by. Hence, this time, I won’t be nominating anyone.
Thank you, Peter.

“There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me, only an entity, something illusory, and though I can hide my cold gaze and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable: I simply am not there.”
A Room With A View
Author: E.M. Forster
“We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won’t do harm – yes, choose a place where you won’t do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine.”
