#AfricanGirlsRead

Happy 2017!! This is our first post for the year and we are hoping that the year has started on a good note for you. If it has not started on the best of notes, just consider January as your trial month 🙂

As we rounded off 2016 at our last Meetup, we discussed the need to start a movement and get African Girls showing off their intellect and desire for knowledge. This is something to be proud of. We felt that the movement had a place in inspiring other African girls to be on the pursuit of awareness through books. Why ‘African Girls’ you may ask? Well, BLV Book Club is proudly African. Not all the books we read are by African authors (we believe that we can learn from a wide array of genres), but the topics we discuss during our Meetups are meant to strengthen our awareness on how we can improve certain issues within the African context. An empowered woman’s best asset is her mind and books are amongst the things that help fuel the mind. Let us show this off ladies!

Here are some snippets of the #AfricanGirlsRead movement.

The movement has helped us gain many followers and will not be restricted to January but will be ongoing. Follow us on Instagram: blvbc and join the movement.

We urge you to continue on this journey with us. I, personally, have taken up a #30bookchallenge for 2017 which I feel is fairly achievable. I plan to read a lot more about Personal Effectiveness, Marketing, Financial literacy and a bit of fiction to get my imagination running. What are your reading goals for the year?

Let us make 2017 great.
