Africana collection up for grabs

UPDATE: THE WHOLE LOT HAS BEEN SOLD OUT. NO NEED TO MESSAGE OR WHATSAPP ME ANYMORE. THE LOOT HAS BEEN TAKEN.

I am selling a portion of my Africana book collection. Details are as below (with a photo slideshow). For a budding writer, this could be a good way to build up her/his Africana collection affordably. First come first serve. There is a discount and free delivery (within Nairobi) if you buy the whole lot — 35,000/= total. All prices are in Kenya shillings. You can post below or send me a whatsapp on 0703-888562 if interested in whole lot or select books. Remember first come first serve. I will not favour friends etc. Stick to the line. A few books may have notes I have made in the margins (in pencil…I don’t use pen when doing this).
