Readers Club

I recently visited the Accra Library Board Readers Club and i was really amazed. I had fun and really enjoyed interacting with lots of readers. The visit got me thinking and i made a little research on the Internet about Readers Clubs.

One Readers club i really liked was the Oprah Winfrey Books club. After perusing through the books in the Oprah’s Book Club.
