Thumbs up Great Ebook Interest!

My name is Auwalu Inuwa Diso from Nigeria.

I have been keenly interested in ebooks and ebook readers for about five years now, searching and downloading hundreds of (free) ebooks on the Internet about every topic I am curious about. Since then, I have developed a passion for the ebook industry and dreamed of thriving in it.

My interest in ebooks has led me to start a print newsletter, which I called ebook source, with the intention of educating my community about ebooks.
However, I changed the name of the publication to Web Source, so as to expand my advertising market but dedicated a column with the name eBook Source.

As a result of publishing the paper, I was invited to participate in a number of ICT awareness campaigns, where I delivered lectures on "What You Need to Know about Electronic Books."

However, after eleven editions, I discontinued the publication due to my trip to Senegal, where I spent three years working for an NGO.

I have recently returned to Nigeria and my interest in the ebook industry is as keen as ever, which is why I joined this forum.

Right now I am in the USA for a visit. One of my goals here is to purchase an ereader, probably a sony, and take it to Nigeria.

I even have a coveted goal of selling ebook readers in my country soon.
