The Road Once Taken
We may know of some people who have undertaken the long trek from Nigeria to Europe. A journey that is described as a harrowing experience, something we wouldn’t wish on our enemies.
Unfortunately, even with thousands of stories online about the horrors that happen on these journeys, people still set out every day in search of “greener pastures”. Which is what happens with Linda, the chief character in Blessing Gbudje’s book. Find out if Linda survives in The Road Once Taken.

Against The Run Of Play
Nigerian political books, for the most part, are based on biases … ethnic bias, religious bias, party bias, and our all time favorite, ego bias. So we were curious about the type of bias we would find in Segun Adeniyi's political book. But we were quite disappointed …
While there is no such thing as zero bias, we must say that Segun Adeniyi’s Against The Run of Play comes quite close. It is one of the most detailed and unbiased analysis of politics in Nigeria that we have read in a long time! Maybe that why it's still this week's #1 bestselling book. Read Against The Run Of Play today.
