My name is BeeCee Ugboh and as a child, I grew up with a reading culture. I remember vividly my favorite spot at the local library back in Asaba Delta state my hometown. I guess I took that habit from my father because I grew up seeing him read everyday from the scriptures to newspaper articles and personal development books. That became my normal as a growing child and before I realized it, I became a reader too.
Fast forward to adulthood, I observed that the reading culture had waned especially among the youths and that has taken a toll on us as a nation. Even with information at our fingertips in this era of social media, young people find it difficult to read books that develop them.
There’s a saying that goes thus “If you want to hide anything, put it in a book” and we have decided to change that narrative as BeeCee and Brains BookClub members read and review a book a month with structured plans on how to apply the knowledge gotten from each book.
So I decided to create a book club for people interested in personal development and people ready to get the benefits of reading such as mental stimulation, knowledge, vocabulary expansion and memory improvement.
