Book Signing of Diary of a Desperate Naija Woman

Oh Gosh, I had a lovely time today!

I don't know if it was the small chops or the skittles I got, or free Matters of the Heart book, or free praise CD, book marks, sticker, and so on. All I know is that I had a lovely time today, and it was because I went for the first ever book signing of Diary of a Desperate Naija Woman, by Bola Essien-Nelson. It was fun, fun, and fun. See the pictures I took and testify.

And so I bought the book, and felt it was another book I just had to get because I am an author and have to support other authors, especially the ones who have been supporting me.

I was wrong...

I was about to throw the book into my 'I will read it later' library, when I decided to open it to check the quality of the print. This is what jumped at me

TRUE FAITH IS DEMONSTRATED BY STUBBORN PATIENCE

I was like, what is this woman talking about? I sure want to find out, so I knew that I couldn't read this one later.

The book is just awesome. I have scanned through the pages and I know it  is. You need to get it, I am telling you. So, so, inspiring, which you would agree if you have been reading her blog here. I will definitely be reading it now, and will gist you more. But in the meantime, you would do yourself good by getting your copy, whether hard copy, or kindle version.


It is really something you don't want to miss.

  10. I can really say, from the pictures, that you indeed had a nice time at the book signing. I wish I had attended too. I read the announcement of the event on facebook. Now, I am somewhat sad I couldn't make it down there. I was only held back by these school works pressing my brain into my lung. I think I should sue my school Vice Chancellor for this.

    I must just read this book soon. I have been reading good things about it lately.
