“Okada books is the fast, simple and fun way to read books without ever leaving your couch.”
It is an online publishing platform that allows authors from any background publish their books in a short amount of time and allows readers access to these books.
How it was founded:
Okada Books was founded by Okechukwu Ofili. He had just written a book, How Stupidity Saved My Life, and he made some money from sales. However, when he went to bookstores redeem the supposed money, he faced a lot of setbacks. Although he was finally able to get the money due him, he realized that there had to be a more transparent method of selling books, and thus Okada Books was formed
