What Nigerian Books Are You Reading?

Nigerians love to read. You just have to go to the nearest vendor to see the myriads of publication to convince yourself. But the question is different when it comes down to books. Some have the tendency to look down on Nigerian Books. One can hardly see books in Nigerian Languages. Why?

Most of us will remember African Writers Series, Pacesetters and other series. I have just finished reading 'Ajasin; Memoirs and Memories' and Dare Babarinsa's House of War. They are engrossing and they will give you insight into Nigerian Politics. So beloved Folks, have you read any Nigerian book of recent?

currently reading 'Diaries of a dead African' by Chuma Nwokolo. its really good, our authors are really trying- if only their books were that accescible. i live to see the day when we don't have to visit high-end malls to purchase Nigerian novels.

New Year's Day by Nina Ndubuisi - Maybe because I am biased, but so far its had excellent reviews and great feedback from the critics, its also being produced into a Blockbuster movie by Ruke Amata...

"Unknown to Nicholas his wife of eleven years has been having an affair with their Pastor who also happens to be his cousin although his wife is unaware of their ‘blood ties’ On New Year’s Day after accidentally knocking over his wife’s handbag, Nicholas finds ‘a note’ that sets off a chain of events. Secrets, sex, betrayal and revelations abound in this hot and Intimate story".

On sale all over Nigeria and Ghana and on line for the rest of the world.

I once read a Nigerian thriller novel"Mark Of The Cobra". I can't help not ravishing in a day. So compelling.

I am very new to this forum and am developing a love for Nigerian literature. Someone very dear to me recently quoted a phrase about men being men from the book by the late Cyprian Ekwensi titled, Passport of Mallam Ilia. I have not been able to locate where to purchase this book as a gift for him. Is there anyone out there who knows where I can purchase one or two copies?

I want to help as many Nigerians as possible Increase their reading speed!

We live in a world of enormously increasing information. Right from emails, online contents, reports, proposals, minutes of meetings and a whole lot of online and offline written or printed matter to read, digest or catch up with. In this information age, a whole lot of information exists in various forms, like multimedia, books etc.

It’s however of great importance to know that a bulk part of our needed information are written in one form or the other. This makes reading a very important part of our works, day to day life and even for leisure.

The average reading speed of most people is 300wpm Whereas the The human brain is capable of much more if trained to do so, The implication of slow reading speed is that if you fail to develop and increase your reading speed, you might soon be overcome by information overload

Relax! As there is no need to panic as I have done your homework for you by gathering a lot of quality resources that will help your reading speed greater than you can ever imagined, I am talking about increasing your reading speed by over …300%.

Download your own copy here or send a mail to me at emmandus@yahoo.com to request for this FREE report!!

Yes! The free report that can increase your speed by 300% and it's available to you now!

Emmandus!

Read Achebe's CHIKE AND THE RIVER again. I think the success of Things Fall Apart, has undermined other worthy works of the legendary author.

Introducing a Novel by a Nigerian author like no other...one with HOLLYWOOD POTENTIAL...think of hollywood blockbusters like Harry Potter and you get the picture...coming into Nigeria vry vry soon...'George Shadow is a Nigerian author in a class of his own, unrivaled': Peter Morphy.

BOOK by George Shadow

A boy and his adopted sisters unwillingly go back in time with their friends and classmates after he mistakenly pens down everyone's name in an ancient book of magic and mysticism, which he found up in their attic while rummaging around…

So far I have read the book titled "The Nigerian Tragedy" written by Aderonke Moyinlorun. It is a wonderful book especially as it talks about the problems of Nigeria in a fictional way. In this moment that we are in Nigeria, "the Nigeria Tragedy"is a book we all need to read to give us hope that a better Nigeria is possible. I strongly recommend this book. It just $2.99 on kindle, http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00712ROOA and $6.99 for paperback http://www.amazon.com/Nigerian-Tragedy-Aderonke-B-Moyinlorun/dp/146118598X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1327444970&sr=8-1

NIGERIANS read this is true. its population also helps writers cope. what is the case of my country cameroon? you launch a novel and people may only buy it at the launch while the rest is left to rot at the store despite the serious theme the book is centered on and despite the books propagation.
