I am so surprised to see 'Things Fall apart' on your challenge list. I love Chinua Achebe and I actually wrote my Master's thesis (some 100 pages) on his works, including 'Things Fall Apart'.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
