 Anyways..any one knows of a club or willing to help me start one??

Jammo we are in the same boat...

Am so glad you posted this thread,we should begin a book club,recently I joined a book club,but the intrests of the other members were books from west Africa which are really not my type...

AM currently reading the Secret by Byne and its a great great fantastic book,the monk who sold his Ferrari not yet would love to read it so will grab myself a copy,but by the same author is The saint The surfer and the CEO

Am a book fanatic,I walk into Text book center and I want to buy like all the books but I have to restrain myself...

Am also reading thought to build on and guidlines to investing,I would really like to see your collection.  Am glad you posted this thread. Begin a book club and count me in.

Crazy About Books [wandabwa]

@ jammo

We should be sailing in the same boat.

I am so crazy about books.

Trouble is finding like minded fellows to share both the books and the ideas.

Since I have been finding it rough getting a book club,I have been surviving by buying my own books.

A book club is a welcome idea anywhere any time.

I believe the British Council Libraries In Kenya  closed down due to low readership due to competing sources on information i.e the internet.Can someone confirm this?

@ Jammo you can be the force behind the book club. You should start with a few guys maybe 5 and them build on that number.  Maybe you have concentrated to much on investment books which might not be interesting to many people. What I can advice you is to include other topics like motivational books,biographies,or religion this will make the club more interesting.

The main objective of the club should be sharing books and any other informational material . Club members should be ready to spend on books. Which most kenyans think is a waste of money.

Another option is to join a library like British Library it is well stocked and it will help you save a lot instead of buying books you can be borrowing from the library.

Was it a real ferrari ama a toy? Just kidding. This is a brilliant idea although most kenyans dont like reading,leave alone books. Hata gazeti.
