What you need to know:

  • I am not always quick to lend out my books, unless I have read them for, like, the eleventh time, or I find the book(s) a tad uninteresting.
  • I admit that I am a bit of a hoarder, but the two books I won’t give anyone, even if held at gunpoint, are Fiston Mwanza Mujila’s award-winning novel Tram 83 and H Rider Haggard’s Allan Quartermain, the latter is stuff for the ages.
