Five Timeless Books You Must Read Before May Runs Out!

Here in South West Nigeria, the rain has started falling and everywhere is cold.We all need a companion.Reading a good book can make a good companion in this raining season.
BookRepublic is recommending these books,five,to you bookaholics out there just for this blessed month of May.These books,I promise, are quite engaging.

1 Lola Shoneyin’s The Secret Lives Of Baba Segi’s Wives: I have personally read this novel and it can be very full of humour. Other times,it can be somehow engaging.Lola Shoneyin weaves the story of a polygamist businessman and his collection of wives and children. The book is published by Cassava Republic Press.This is her website –

2 Wole Soyinka’s Kongi’s Harvest : Yes,no need to complain,I understand.Most of us dread Wole Soyinka’s works. Reason? We believe he uses big,big words that small,small men like us cannot comprehend with ease.
But sincerely,Kongi’s Harvest is one of his most successful works. The play, well written,witty and full of humour, raises a voice against totalitarianism inherent in most African governments. The book is published in Nigeria by University Press Plc. Visit:

3 Brian Tracy’s Crunch Point : The quote at the top of the book attracted me : It is not how high you fall but how high you bounce! Crunch point shows you how to bounce back quickly from any problem or reversal. What do you need again to be motivated out of frustration?! Go and get the book!
American Management Association are the publishers of this great book, by a personal success and business expert. Visit
