There was a time when it seemed like the reading culture was going to shit (permit my language), because it seemed like everybody was more interested in chatting up strangers on Facebook, laughing at jokes on Instagram or recording video’s for snapchat. However, with the recent development from sites like Madivas and the release of tell-all’s; the reading culture is coming back and we are super excited about it. This excitement is what has prompted us to share with you 5 books by Nigerians you should read before the year ends. We must preserve our reading culture as it has become an endangered specie .
Nigerians are great at whatever they do and this also has to do with the literary world, we have well renounced authors and scholars; we also have upcoming authors who know and understand how to spin a good story and you know we all love a good tale. Below is the list of 5 books that we think should occupy your time this final month in 2016;

Its well known that Nigerians love to travel abroad especially to he Uk for their higher degree, this is a simple yet exciting story of one girls journey
2. Guardians of the seal by Tunde Leye
I love mythologies; ancient history is all so fascinating; I also love stories that can be spurn out of the oldest book in the world “The Bible”. This book offers an interesting journey into the life of Tara and it is a well spurned fantasy.
