Cost of books killing reading culture in Malwai

Here’s One All The Way From Malawi Librarian Professor Joseph Uta has said the high cost of books has contributed to the death of the reading culture in the country.
Uta noted this over the weekend after opening the Anglia Book Distributors Mzuzu University Branch.
He said it was imperative that a way be found to ensure that books were affordable in the country.
“We cry foul that Malawians don’t have a reading culture these days, you find youngsters and adults busy watching TV and not reading books. One of the reasons for this is, of course, the expensive prices of books,†he said.
