"It's Our Turn To Eat" - Controversial book now available as an e-book


The book that Kenyan bookstores have all been to scared to stock is available to all (if you have a credit card) as an ebook through Harper Collins.

Michela Wrong's recent book, "It's Our Turn to Eat - The Story of a Kenyan Whistle Blower" has upset quite a few big names in the political arena and bookstores nationwide have been scared to stock it for fear of liability. Alas, the World Wide Web comes to the rescue again! You can buy the book online for £5.56 (cheaper than what it would be on the bookshelves) and they send you a copy of the book in pdf!
