Every time he calls

My eyes glint for effortlessly he enthrals

What he does leaves me with perpetual smiles

Making my lips curve into smiles spanning miles

With every beep that signals a text from you

My whole being is bundled off to the moon

nations1

Why Nations Fail by Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson has been laying miserably on my shelf for quite some time. I wasn’t sure I would enjoy it and more so  being voluminous. It came with a jacket of praise because it appeared on  Mark Zuckerberg 2015 reading list and that’s how it found its way in my hands. Having pursued Economics in my undergraduate, I could absolutely relate to it as soon as I raved about it, such an insightful and terrific book!

Professor Nato : Reading should be viewed as a pleasure not a chore

Professor Jacob Nato is a lecturer at Kenyatta University. He lectures in the school of Economics. Bellapace had a chance to interact with him and the session was phenomenal. He is an avid reader and his vast knowledge is dazzling.

Book nerds take books for precious gems in their life and mishandling a book can cause emotional turmoil so next time I lend you a book take good care of it, a mere dog ear or highlighting my book can be the end of our good friendship.

Auntie… I Love The Smell of Books!

 

I want to be a pilot!

I want to be a pilot!

We all have those little ambitious siblings, nephews, nieces; children…name them, who will often bombard you with their dreams. Some aspire to be a neurosurgeons and pilots, which are high profiled careers, as you acutely listen to them you can only hope that a personal prescription of Panadol Extra won’t be the end of our future ‘Ben Carson’ or watching gracefully as their dreams slip off their fingers into thin air will not be the farthest they will ascend as pilots.
