Opening a Bookshop

I have had this passion for a very long time. A passion to open a bookshop that would sell literary books at a low price to literary followers. The idea would incorporate the holding of book readings, literary meetings and workshops and with time the hosting of literary events. With our own website and other programs, it would be possible to have bookclub for different age categories, book discussions and prizes so that we can encourage reading in Ghana and improve the literary front. 

If you have such interest mail me at freduagyeman(at)yahoo(dot)com.


  1. This is a great idea, music to a writer's ears. I wish you all the best.

  2. A traditional bookshop with a personal feel would be nice. Both legon and silverbird bookshops seem so institutional. There's no "love" behind it. No passion, if you know what i mean. They are businesses all right but a proper bookshop should do more than sell books. It should inspire. Here's to encourage you. All the best.

  3. I would be one of your first customers and "critics".

  4. @Myne Whitman...thanks and it is something I would work towards.

  5. @Ms Cleland...yes ooo. Silverbird and Legon are business oriented. They don't love books and so do not organise readings and other literary programs. It hurts me so much.

  6. good luck good luck good luck!!! :-) what a wonderful ambition!
