  1. Hmmm. I wonder what the book itself costs.

    Buy a book and review it to win 15 grand?

    I think not. I’d rather do it for the heck of it.

    1. LOL!

      My point exactly…what a clever marketing scheme!

      But seriously…is it really clever?

      1. I don’t think paying to have your book reviewed is absurd…perhaps organising a contest around it is, but it’s all to an end- Publicity. You’ll be surprised at how well this worked eventually…or not.

  2. Me too @seun. No b small thing. Book review sef don turn to contest. Na waoo.

  3. Amazing cover design!

  4. yeah…very attractive cover. Maybe if they provide pdf versions of the book free and let folks compete to review…

  5. Don’t just read it. Buy it and prove you did with a receipt number. Na wah o.

  6. But I don’t want to read the book na.
    I will still do a review. Nobody says you must read a book before you review it.

  7. The bone, is it really edible?

  8. am sure the bones we are reviewing are edible if not they will not ask us to review it

  9. I love bones… and edible ones? yummy!
    Nice marketing and publicity scheme… this is business.

  10. edible bones..’non-edible flesh’

  11. @Kayceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
    Mmm @lawore olufemi, “non-edible fleshe?”
    Chy you’re right @Chimzorom
    Sure @mikeeffa

  12. A slip of the ink. Pls ‘flesh’ and not +e.
    Thank you.
