The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba



This is my first post from my phone, hope it works.

This was a great book, much better than I expected! I have read some dry long nonfiction about Africa that feels like a duty more than a pleasure. But this book I couldn’t put down! (Well unless a child was screaming or something and I didn’t have a choice)

I don’t want to give anything away but this book about a boy with a tough time getting to school bears so much hope for the continent, in one boy!

Must read for those with a heart for Africa! 5/5 stars (post by Meghan)

Note, I am sort of switching to Goodreads as my book tracker, but am having a hard time abandoning the blog- that being said posts will probably be short. Follow me at goodreads as well for when this thing eventually dies.

    I chose this during my month for my book club. I wasn’t sure how it would go over with my club, but I think everyone enjoyed it. It was inspirational and makes me appreciate all the many luxuries I enjoy. I’m really bad about posting, but I do read at least a book a month for my book club. Have recently loved the Divergent series, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and currently reading & enjoying The Book Thief.
