If you are an avid book reader in Ghana like myself, then sometimes your desire to get some books especially physical books in Accra can be a frustrated.
Luckily, this article exists, we have put together a collection of all the major channels you can find any book you want.
Below are the platforms you can your favourite books, both online and physical bookstores:
1. Oniocha books
Oniocha are currently my personal favourite book place. The online web-store provides a platform that helps you to find books you are looking for, order and get them delivered to your doorstep.
Their e-commerce store lists a raft of books you can choose from, ranging from African literature, autobiographies, romance, novels, memoirs to children’s books.
According to their website, you can “sell, request, and swap books” on their platform. You can visit Oniocha.com and browse through their collection of books.
I don’t know how their swapping book option works like, but I am eager to try.
2. EPP Book Services
If you have schooled in Ghana, then you probably have bought a book or loads of them from EPP. EPP Book Services have several book stores scattered across the country.
In Accra, you can find EPP Book shops at University of Ghana – Legon, GIMPA, Zenith College, Mataheko, Trade Fair, Methodist University, and Achimota.
They are mainly known for their textbooks and educational books although their library stocks a lot of other book genres including novels, children’s storybooks, biographies etc.
SoluShop is a marketplace where you can find various items for and on sale. But as a book lover, one category I often visit on their website us the Book Category.
Compared to the other books stores, SoluShop has fewer book items on their shelves, however they do have a wide array of New York Time Bestsellers.
You will find books like The Subtle Art if Not Giving a F*ck, Born a Crime, We Should All be Feminists, How Successful People Think, Understanding and Applying Critical Thinking and a host of other bestsellers on their shelves.
Order a book and they will get it delivered to you.
