Frequently Asked Questions

One Read is a virtual book club through which members will have access to one book (ebook and audiobook) for 21 days every month. For the rest of the month, users can leave reviews, engage with the author of the book, either online or at a physical book reading. The aim of One Read is two-fold: to promote writers, publishers and other players in the African book industry and to create a community of readers who can reignite the reading culture in Africa.

To read the book of the month, subscribe to One Read via the website, Android or iOS application. You can pay for a month or a year at ₦400 and ₦4500 respectively. We currently accept Mastercard, VISA and Verve debit cards.

One Read is not an online bookstore, therefore you cannot own the books we provide. We only offer the book for 21 days.

One Read does not sell books, but we can suggest a few places from which you can purchase a physical copy of the book of the month. Visit our Find a bookstore page to find a retailer near you.
