The importance of books in the process of education can not be undermined. In the Nigerian society, education is not complete without the introduction to certain texts. If you were a student of literature, you could not escape reading certain texts that were mandatory as stipulated in the curriculum. Most young people drew inspiration from books such as Achebe's Things Fall Apart, Soyinka's The Lion and the Jewel, while others became disciples of Shakespeare after reading texts like Hamlet, and Julius Caesar.
