Reading Culture! Will Nigerians Read Books On Mobile Phones? by naijagaga: 2:26am On Jul 16, 2013

The reading culture of Nigerians has been on a steady decline for some time now. The decline can be attributed to many factors from a tough economy to a general lack of reading interest in the younger generation. Some have even gone as far as blaming the poor reading culture on mobile devices.

Now there is a new app called okadabooks that is putting Nigerian books on mobile phones in a bid to get people to read on phones. The app has a diverse collection of books from Nigerian authors and even past WAEC/JAMB questions with answers.

This all sounds like a good idea, but the question is will Nigerians actually read and buy books on their phone and will students actually study with their phones. Check out the app at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.okadabooks and let us know what you think about it and the Nigerian reading culture in general.

I believe so, its actually a lot easier than on laptops or even hard copy. if they can avidly follow stories on this forum the why can't they download and read a whole book on their phones. I love the idea of okadabooks but seems like it doesn't work on BBs That's the fail. Andriods are expensive to maintain and subscribe internet for, so if you wanna design an app for mobile phones for Nigerians, its got to be a BB app...
