It’s been such a hectic week. I can’t wait to have a relaxing weekend. I have family visiting from out of town, so I’m envisioning delicious dinners and great conversations.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Meanwhile, to keep things fun here at Brittle Paper, here are pictures of African novels sourced from Instagram.

Enjoy!
