The Silent Book Party 

The silent book party is a time and place where book lovers come to read, discuss and barter books. The organizers Lade Tawak and Denike Sheriff came up with the idea to create an opportunity for people to read in a quiet and convenient place because most times people complain that they don’t have time to read. Even book lovers who have one million books on their to read list.

The reading time is about 60 to 90 minutes. After that comes time to socialise – discuss and barter books. And to complete the circle was food/refreshments.🙌

It was a beautiful experience. Trust me. Eating chocolate cake, sipping hot chocolate and reading a very nice book in the midst of like-minded people was truly phenomenal. The lovely book I read is Terra Cotta Beauty by Jola Naibi.

The next silent book party will hold at Lit Caf, E-Center, Yaba on the 22nd of October 2 pm – 5 pm and the gate fee is one thousand naira.
