Hi everyone I hope we all enjoyed the one day bank holiday...for me I did... I had been thinking of how I was going to make it to the book reading today, as you all know Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was reading from her new book "Americanah" at Patabah bookshop in surulere. Since the owner of the bookshop is a friend I had called in earlier asking for a signed copy, thank God I did cos by the time I got there the paperback was almost all gone.

The book shop was so full inside and outside I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Like my friend said in her own words: "chei chimamanda has hammered". LOL...

I certainly got my book autographed by her and I was so excited. I must say she looks lovelier in person and yes she doesn't like Brazilian, Peruvian but Mehn!!!! does her hair look very healthy.

I asked a young man to please use my phone and record a few of the answer and question clips, as I had my darling Yosola with me, standing and sweating at the same time. Now this guy: I just don't want to call him names: he didn't do anything at all...pssssshhhhhh (sighing out loud).
Anyways these are some of the pictures I took...

I tried to get the picture of the guy standing behind her with the phone but couldn't... I think he is her manager or something... My dears she really has hammered..
People outside the bookshop.. all these books gone by the end of the event..

I am so tired now just loosened my hair and had a wash, want to settle in and begin reading the book, but can't at this moment, need to rest before my madam wakes up...

Do take care of yourself and have a lovely day

N/P: Stanbic IBTC just sacked 250 staff
Visa Phone just sacked about 60 staff... I hear for the Stanbic IBTC that this is just the beginning as they want to have more outsourced staff and less permanent staff...

Hmmm I can't imagine what the families, that were affected by this would be going through.. I just pray for them that they will find the courage to see this through.
