Looking for a good book to read? Every week, ZODML spotlights three great books from our extensive collection to inspire readers to try out books they might not have previously heard of. The selections fall under three major categories – fiction, non-fiction and children and young adult literature – so there’s a book to suit every taste. All of the books are available to borrow for free at our Community Library on Awolowo Road, Ikoyi. Be sure to check out our archives to see which books have been selected in the past.
Fiction: Nights of the Creaking Bed by Toni Kan Nights of the Creaking Bed is a collection of fourteen short stories: a girl who is rejected in love because she has three brothers to look after; a middle aged housewife who finds love again but is faced with an impossible decision, and many more characters in love fill its pages. Non-Fiction: Excuse Me by Victor Ehikamenor Written in a clear, friendly, direct style, Excuse Me is a collection of anecdotes previously published in the 234Next Newspaper. The book uncovers the real strength behind our emotions, and will help everyone who has ever wanted to turn their life around to achieve their true self. Children and Young Adults: Barbwireby Gbadebo Adeniyi Major Hakeem Bello, on his way back home from a military course, is caught in a dance of death on an ill-fated flight.
