books books books

I want to read more books. Like Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, kindly lent to me by Kajsa. I enjoyed it so much, very interesting, superbly written and I learnt a lot I didnt know before.
I've always wanted to read more books by contemporary African authors but haven't had much luck in finding them in Norway. Maybe I just dont know where to look, or who to look for. So... please, suggestions and recommendations greatly appreciated.

If you are looking for books by African authors, the best places that I know of in Accra are: Univ of Ghana bookshop (near the UG library), EPP (various locations, but opposite the Trade Fair is OK for accessibility) and Vidya's (in Osu, next to TNT)... Hope this helps. Nina

selv om du ikke er i Norge nå, er et godt tips på å finne bøker i Norge Trondsmo Bokhandel på Tullinløkka i Oslo. Jeg har fått alle Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie's bøker derfra, samt Wole Soyinka og Chinua Achebe for eksempel :)
