Sip N Swap Part Deux

You meet nice people. You swap nice books. You eat nice food. You talk nice books!

I loved this month’s Sip N Swap! At Tea Baa (amazing place in Accra, nice food, great ambience, see pictures!). A Nice avenue set up by Brunch Over Books to discuss must-read African fiction, or anything written of importance to Africa that you’d advice even your grandma to go get (chances are she wouldn’t, she will still complaining about her bad sight even though she’s got about six different spectacles!)

This month’s (see last month’s) event was more personal. The crowd more open. Discussions starting even before the event commenced. Yes, you won’t find it difficult starting conversations with a bunch of bookworms because no one is looking into their phones! I must add, I ordered The Half of A Yellow Sun cocktail and the Things Fall Apart cheesecake! (I’ll tell you one thing! I didn’t DNF the Half of a Yellow Sun cocktail on the first Sip, like I did the book! And The Things Fall Apart cheesecake, didn’t leave a sour taste in my mouth! Like the book did!)
