As the author rightly puts it, if a ship were to be at risk, the first thing the captain would do is clear the deck. Every season or new year, it is important to clear your mind to have a fresh perspective or view. We dare say that Clearing Your Mental Deck is just the right resource to kickstart the new year. After you have achieved clarity and made those plans or set those goals, you should also read Get Set March, which is one of the best resources on execution and seeing your plans through.


For people in Nigeria, “relocation” or “JAPA” should be the word of the year. If you are considering migrating or would love to read more about the experiences of migrants (fiction and non-fiction), then we have got just the perfect books for you.

I, Eric Ngalle is a must-have for every library and bookshelf in Africa. First, it is one of the most honest and down-to-earth memoirs ever written about the author’s journey to finding greener pastures. It’s also got a good dose of humour, even though it depicts a rather sad reality (human trafficking). Omo has been described as “every Nigerian girl’s story”. It is the story of one girl’s desire for more than life and her family status can give her, so it is no wonder that we see the protagonist travelling through the deserts and the Mediterranean in search of a better life. When the protagonist in Woes of Ikenga decided to travel to Germany, his simple plan is to go and work in the White man’s land for a few years and return to Nigeria to liberate his family from poverty. Then, he sets off and learns that shortcuts are in fact longer.


Oil may be perceived as wealth for Nigeria. What does it mean for the people of the Niger Delta of South Southern Nigeria? In The Riddle of the Oil Thief, the author gives an honest take on oil and the consequences of being an indigene of a Nigerian oil-rich/producing state. In Bridging Civil-Military Gap, the author submits her study on the security situation in Nigeria. Her hypothesis at the end of the document is straightforward: civilians need to collaborate with and help the military if the nation’s security situation is to be improved upon.


Hello Ladies! Over here!

Do you know that you are enough and powerful? Do you know that your opinion and thoughts are valid and that you are more than your domestic abilities? Ahhh! Now you see why you ought to buy and read A Woman’s Worth. But women have always been marginalised since the days of our ancestors, you say. Err… the author of Women and Leadership in Igboland has a contrary opinion on that. And she proves her submission that women can and should aspire for leadership with the customs and traditions of Igboland as a case study.


Multiple award-winning author and professor of English Literature, Professor Akachi Ezeigbo needs no introduction in the Nigerian and international literary sphere. Recently in a Facebook post, she described The Writer in the Mirror as the book that makes it unnecessary for her to write an autobiography. It’s a must-have for every woman who wants to learn more about the legend that is Professor Theodora Akachi Adimora-Ezeigbo. Of course, we cannot tell you enough how relevant the book I, Eric Ngalle is, but if you love reading memoirs and real-life adventures, then you just have to read it. In 60 Days of Power, the author pays tribute to his late father, Power Aginighan, by collecting testimonies of the lives touched by his father into reflections and devotionals. If you’re tired of doing good, then you should read this as well as Building Castles with Pebbles.


Is fiction is your thing? We’ve got you.

The story of Omo, the protagonist in Omo will inspire any young woman or teen girl. Likewise, The Diary of a Boy Soldier is the perfect read for every teenage boy. For some reason, women love Nnenna. You can see more about this claim here and here, and get a copy to find out why. We are sure that you would love it too. What do you do when you find out that your holier-than-thou mother is in fact cheating on your dad and has helped her boyfriend cover up your only sister’s murder? You should read Amalu’s story in Girls on Purple Ribbons. We wish we could give a spoiler for Scarlet, but it is too intense for us to even begin to try. However, if you love Epic Fantasies with a sprinkle of a love triangle and plenty of interventions of gods and wraiths in human business mixed with lots of violence and blood, then you gotta read Scarlet. The Riddle of the Oil Thief and The Last Carver are neo-classics or historical fiction at their finest. There are so many reasons to love both books, but we are sure that you would love the narrative style of both books. Take our word for it; the author of Woes of Ikenga is a fine storyteller. You should read about Ikenga’s journey to Germany from Nigeria, on foot.


In Cell 2, the playwright fictionalises his experience of unlawful arrest and his experience while in detention. From the exchanges of the characters, we learn a lesson or two about Nigeria and its sinners and saints.


If you’re a fan of beautiful, easy, lyrical poetry, then The Girl in the Rain is just the right book for you.


Are you seeking to improve your knowledge of Igbo? Are you fluent in Igbo and enjoy reading books written books in the language? You should read our Igbo titles.
