Books I Recommend

I am currently participating in the #readathonwithOA. It’s a reading challenge organized by Ope Akinbo to read 26 books in this year i.e one book in two weeks.

In 2017, those who participated in the challenge were to read one book in one week. So that’s 52 books read by each person in 2017. Based on this, I set for myself the goal of reading 50 books this year.

Some of these books are outlined in the list below. I hope they bring you enlightenment and wisdom as they have brought me in my journey of self development.
