THE FANATIC READER : Who Is And How To Be


AUTHOR:  FRANK OSEI NYAME

”Knowing how to read and not reading books is like

owning skis and not skiing, owning a board and never riding a wave,

or, well, having your favourite sandwich in your hand and not eating it.

If you owned a telescope that would open up the

of climbing the highest mountain, of diving in the deepest sea.
