WAEC/NECO Literature Study Guide

If you’ve been following the bookconvo site (www.bookconvo.com), you’ll observe that it’s been down for some time now. There were some technical hitches leading to loss of data. I sincerely apologise for not doing a proper back up of the site and take full responsibility for the loss of all your insightful comments.

In the next couple of days, I would be posting reviews of  Lonely Days, Faceless, Blood of A Stranger, Harvest of Corruption and the African poems salvaged from the site.

Feel free to ask questions as there a number of literature teachers who are willing to participate in the discussions. I look forward to your comments and contributions.

You can also buy The Complete Guide to Literature in English for a better understanding of all the African and non-African texts and poems.
