Nigeria has produced some of the world's greatest authors including Chinua Achebe and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Books are sold on the street corners along with phone charge cards, peanuts and chewing gum. Here's a photo from Book Cafe in Nigerian capital Abuja showing President Goodluck Jonathan reading. The shop is also starting a book group soon. At a time when terrorist group Boko Haram is doing everything it can to scare children away from school, reading groups and bookshops like these are more important than ever.
