Sharon Ellis | 6 comments Greetings Hiram and all in the Kenya Book Lovers.
I wish to greet you as the Author of "Communions With Christ."
I sumbit this book - Communions With Christ by Sharon Ellis - as reading because the true testimony is an inspiring series of personal experiences and is full of the outstanding insights which the Lord Christ Jesus allowed me to have by holy Christian revelation in Him.
To the Lord be the Glory.
May the Kingdom of God continue to come to earth and may we each be so blessed as to meet Holy Spirit there.
I invite anyone to chat with me if you would like, to either now or as you read this book.
Sharon

Ekiago | 5 comments Hi Brothers and sisters! we need to think of how we can begin a book club...an accountability programme, where we can meet possibly once a month say for those in Nairobi and look at what we are reading. I am currently reading...Retire Young Retire rich By Robert Kiyosaki. I recommend How to make Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

Angela (angelsaiti) | 1 comments Hi Ekiago,

I love reading and the idea of a club would be great. But as you think of one in Nairobi, think of how it can go country for those of us up country.

Sharon Ellis | 6 comments HI Betty and Mel and everyone! Wishing all a happy week!


message 11: by Mel (new)

Mel Munyua | 3 comments what book are you reading? Sharon, had a splendid week thanks


message 12: by Sharon (new)

Sharon Ellis | 6 comments HI Mel & everyone! I just got back from the sea side, where my husband and I went to sit by the ocean for three days to do the final editing on my second book manuscript. I felt so "Earnest Hemingway" sitting by the ocean - so beautiful - while I did my final read through on manuscript before submitting to my publisher.
So, I guess my answer is, I have been reading my own book! :) Big smiley face. I think that the subject is fascinating and riviting and very moving and hope that you will enjoy this read very much too. :)
Has anyone here read my first book Communions With Christ? I have a Group on line that you are all invited to join if you'd like, please come and make comments :)

message 14: by Ems (new)

Ems | 2 comments Hi Hiram an all!
Happy new year.
What ever happened with the book club idea???
As for what I'm reading now, just finished The Book Thief by Markus Zusask which is really a YA book, but it does stan out for me for creativity and insights.

Hiram Kamau | 4 comments Mod
hi Ems, well about the book club idea, I think it might be a better idea if this group gained critical mass first, then the rest will surely follow.

I've just read a really great by an inspirational Irish novelist. it's called "Tara Road" written by Maeve Binchy.

Hey, I think i've seen a review of "The Book Thief", lemme dig it out, then see if i can lay my hands on it somwhere.

have a goodread, cheers!

Ciru | 2 comments Hello people, any chance of reviving this great group??? Communicate, thanks


message 20: by M.O. (new)

M.O. Kenyan (mo_author) hey guys i was actually looking forward to this book as an author from Kenya but I when i joined I noticed the last post was in 2009.
Maybe we should try and put together like an admin that frequents goodreads and is always online to update group members.

message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

Hi everyone, finally found a local group. Seems like home folk don't read too much, from the size of group but no fear, two's company, three is a crowd. I'm currently reading a bunch of books, maybe sharing what we are currently reading is a good place to start/continue. Creative Capitalism is what I have currently.


message 22: by Betty (new)

Betty | 3 comments Currently reading Beloved and The Famished Road.


message 23: by Victor (new)

Victor | 1 comments Currently reading - Predictably irrational by Dan Ariel


message 24: by Eric (new)

Eric (mugendi) | 1 comments Being as we're all online in some form or another, how about an ebook? Granted, paper books are an experience that can't be replicated on a screen, but ebooks make the sharing a lot easier.
Currently reading Starbook, by Ben Okri.


message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

Hi Eric, good idea. There are a bunch of great ebooks out there. Also, anyone hangout at StoryMoja, I saw they had some meet up at T Spot. Anyone with more info?


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

@MO, same shocker here, finding the last post was three years ago, and after I had "joined the conversation" lol

M.O. Kenyan (mo_author) hey guys Free book the Mara Song on smashwords check it out.THE MARA SONG


message 29: by Ciru (new)

Ciru | 2 comments Wow.. I'm thoroughly impressed. How about a book club like i've been seeing guys in the West do here? They decide what book to read every month and meet up online to share their thoughts and sentiments. Not necessarily meet up, but by dropping comments. Then a discussion enhances. I'm sure, if we all agree to it and commit ourselves, we shall have something going on here. Thanks lovely ppl.


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

Great idea Cirú. But maybe we can start by just having everyone say hi and introduce themselves, say what genre they enjoy, etc. Unfortunately this group has inactive members. We should all invite our Facebook/Twitter friends to beef up the numbers.

Felgona Adhiambo (diaratos) Hi I'm Diana(duh) :) and I'm currently reading An Equal Music by Vikram Seth and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. I've also started on Women of the Silk by Gail Tsukiyama. I'm trying to pick out one that I'll be engrossed in the most. But I love them all so it's kind of hard to pick out just one.

Victor Muthoka (hundredpercent) | 9 comments Sooo, i hope i'm not blowing your feeds up by adding books to the shelf. Finished a new book, Death Trap Death Trap by Sigmund Brouwer which is an interesting look at sci-fi. Hope you enjoy it as much as i did.
