I blog on all about books
As we intensified our campaigns and promotions in relation to reading of Books and engagement in daily research, we are not oblivious of some challenging principle questions or most frequently asked questions like: ( i) What are good Books, Journals or Materials to read?; (ii) When or how can one be involved or engaged in doing research? The later question appears most daunting or seems to require some skills, some rocket science brains or extra sophistication. However and strangely too, it’s the more straightforward and more simple question having the right and appropriate answers very near- fetched. So, simply investigate, read, find out, interview, question, debate, critique...See more
While BOOKS were described and believed to be widely accepted as – “set of written, printed, or blank pages fastened along one side and encased between protective covers which nowadays include e-books and e-journals, RESEARCH were also accepted to entail the systematic investigation into and study of materials such as books and other sources in order to establish facts and reach new conclusions.

Hurrah! The new era is come! It is all about books. There can’t be a better time to do books than now particularly in African continent where interests in reading books are on the decline. It is also said that to hide a thing from a black man or woman, it must be hidden in a book. Whether the assertion is true or false, is not the main focus of this write up for now. We are to look at books from very holistic angles going forward…..the composition and make ups of books, edition of books, publication of books (both hard copy and online publications) types, shapes, designs and forms of books, the roles that books have played universally, the applicability of books, subject matters of...See more
