Welcome to my blog. Why the Timbuktu title ? This African city was once a centre for learning, scholarship, and books. Books and reading are my passion which I’d like to share with others. I also write on a variety of other topics which I find interesting, or entertaining. You might find the occasional article on Tarot, Mahjongg, cooking, social issues, current events, a travelogue …. this is the joy of having one’s own blog: I can write what I like. I hope you like it too! So enjoy!
I’m writing from a Southern African perspective. I live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world : Cape Town.
Occasionally my cat, Chocolat, adds a short bulletin about what she is reading, or what’s going on in our lives.
Please leave comments – its great to chat with my readers.
