Books transform lives they are bridges from your current self to your best self.

The Book I’m Reading is a weekly cross-platform show where Nigerians hear their idols passionately discuss and read from the books they love. It is hosted by legendary actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, popularly called RMD. The Book I’m Reading is sponsored by Sterling Bank and hosted on RadioNow 95.3 FM. The show is created by Kadaria Ahmed (Chief Executive Officer of RadioNow 95.3FM)

I am a super fan of the #TBIR show since it started and it has become one of my favorite shows to see on Friday. I love books and am always excited to see a show that encourages people to read, especially in a country like Nigeria. The reading culture in Nigeria is very poor as a result of many factors such as lack of public libraries, cultural outlook to reading among other factors.

The thirty-minute program air as a radio broadcast on Radio Now 95.3 FM, as well as on YouTube, and as a podcast. The first episode aired Friday, September 3, 2021.
