Brian Herbert quotes: “The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.”

In the bookmarket, we do not only want to provide educational services and products to our valuable customers we are also seeking ways to build and expand the reading community in Nigeria, Africa, and the world.

To achieve this and more, we are collaborating with some laudable causes to improve education and enlightenment.

For every book you buy a percentage would be donated to this charity:

• Sanitary Aid Nigeria (

We are singing with SANG, advocating for issues on the girl child and education.

The National Democracy and Health Survey 2013,
revealed that girls make up 60 percent of the
10.5 million out-of-school children in Nigeria.

Join us, and “Read for a Cause” in our journey to keep more girls in school…

Our mission is to avail our customers the opportunity to reduce the illiteracy gap, education inequity, and help to sustain the growth, quality, and development of education in our society.

Our Passion

Our dream at The BookMarket is not for you to buy a book. No! We have evolved beyond just making a sale. We create a learning and explosive experience that would make you go home pick up an old book and read it. Nigeria and Africa as a whole is a storytelling continent, the typical customer would be more enthralled with a reading culture than just selling an item.

We sell stories, values, and traditions. Our punchline states: Read A Book A Day, that there lies the crux of what we do, we need our existing and prospective customers to love reading, imbibe it in their daily routine so it’s a habit. A great habit that would improve not only their lives in all spheres but improve society at large. That’s what makes us stand out. We are not in business to just sell you a book, we are in it to make you fall in love with books, reading, and education.

We celebrate and affiliate ourselves with education, writers, literary enthusiasts, publishers, etc. We initiated the Book Club Awareness Initiative (BAI) and the hashtag #bookclubawarenessinitiative on Instagram to drive awareness of book clubs in various localities, connect readers to book clubs and improve the reading culture. The way we see it, reading is a culture and a beautiful way of life and we are building the biggest community of readers in the continent one reader a day.
