Vitabu 23 nilivyosoma mwaka 2015

Zitto Kabwe

Nimesoma vitabu 23 tu mwaka huu unaoisha leo.

Mwaka 2015 ulikuwa mwaka wa uchaguzi, nimesoma zaidi kidogo ya nusu ya https://zittokabwe.wordpress.com/2014/12/27/vitabu-nilivyosoma-2014-books-i-have-read-in-2014-booksread2014-letsread/ .

Katika mwaka 2015 niliweza kufanya uchambuzi wa vitabu 4 tu kwani ilipofika mwishoni mwa mwezi Machi, 2015 nilianza kazi mpya kabisa ya kujenga Chama kipya cha Siasa chenye kufuata mrengo wa kushoto – ACT Wazalendo.

Niliweza kuchambua 1. The Establishment, Owen Jones 2. The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho 3. The Last Banana, Shelby Tucker na 4. Act of Treason, Vince Flynn. Natumai nitarejesha safu yangu ya Kitabu na Kalamu ya gazeti la #RaiaTanzania kuanzia Januari, 2016.

Baadhi ya vitabu nilivyosoma mwaka huu ni marudio ya vitabu nilivyosoma zamani ili kujikumbusha mambo Fulani Fulani. Mfano hivi sasa najitahidi sana kusoma vitabu nilivyosoma shule ya sekondari katika ‘literature’ ili kuelewa zaidi na kulinganisha na hali ya sasa. Ndio maana mwaka huu nilirudia kitabu cha A Man of the People cha Chinua Achebe mara tu baada ya uchaguzi. Kiukweli huwa narudia rudia sana vitabu vya Achebe kutafuta ulinganisho wa hali ya siasa ya miaka ya sitini na miaka hii ya sasa. Vile vile najaribu kuelewa suala la #Biafra kutoka katika jicho la mwandishi.

Mwaka huu nimejitahidi sana kusoma ‘fiction’ na nimefurahia sana juhudi hizo japo niliuweka kando ushairi na sikuweza kabisa kumaliza The Capital, Thomas Piketty. Kwa kuwa nimedhamiria kujikita tena kwenye taalumu yangu ya Uchumi na kutumia taaluma hiyo kwenye siasa za Bunge, nitamaliza The Capital In’Sha Allah. Ninataraji kufungua mwaka na The Courage to Act: A Memoir of a crisis and its aftermath, Ben S. Bernanke. Kitabu hiki nililetewa kama zawadi na @Ritaupara, mmoja wa rafiki zangu wanaopenda kusoma vitabu pia. Kitabu changu bora cha mwaka kilikuwa Ujamaa, Ralph Ibbot. Napendekeza kila Mtanzania anayethamini historia ya nchi yetu miaka ya mwanzo ya Uhuru asome kitabu hiki.
