Welcome to Readers Inc. We are more than an online marketplace for buying, selling and renting pre-owned children story books online that ship all over Nigeria. Our aim is to sustain a reading culture in our children and promote literacy. We believe that reading improves curiosity, builds confident children, broadens perspectives and transforms lives. Yes! Reading transforms lives. We are inspired by the story of Michaela Deprince, a Sierra Leonean-American ballet dancer, currently dancing with the Boston Ballet. She was a war orphan and got inspired to become a ballerina by reading the front cover of a magazine at the age of three. Our regular events encourage our children to network, learn new things and have loads of fun!Become a member
As part of our sharing ethos, we encourage members to lend books. Books are rented on a FIFO (first-in first-out) basis. Deliveries/exchanges/pickups and returns will be made weekly. Should there be a loss or damage to books rented, the market price of replacing the book + shipping cost of purchasing the book will be paid to the lender. Read More
