No one remembers the incorruptible judge and wedlock of the gods. I remembered how we acted wedlock of the gods during primary school graduation it was all fun back then Uloko and dio-pa-ata was the character I acted

OluwabuqqyYOLO:
Those books were the best, man! I learnt reading with Ralia, the sugar girl. Then after, I read every book I came across. I read the Dark Child by C. M Laye in primary school. King Solomon's Mines is one book I'll never forget. If there is anyway I'd get it, someone, please, tell me.

But all sha, I thank my mom. God bless her. She showed me all. Btw, I'm just 19. Not everyone of this generation isn't sound.

I'm equally searching for King Solomon's Mine too, don't know if u read Tom Sawyer? I read King Solomon's Mine when u were btw 7 & 8yrs old. It's good u could share our memories with us @ 19. Nice one bro.

Re: Throwback: Nigerian Literature Books We Used In Secondary School!!! by Nobody: 7:31am On Jul 05, 2016
am crying now. remembering those books brought lots of memories to me. i spent my pockt money on novels. i read any novel i could get my hands on. infact there was hardly any of such novels i did not read. i paid the price though in my 1994 waec. i got an A in english and literature,but Ps in other subjects. 17years after my graduation from the university, am still struggling to become a lawyer, because i dont want the distinction i got in literature to go wasted.
