Suggested Readings from Sharon and Kenneth Holley of Zawadi Books

“How many of us would say we make adequate time for reading in our lives?  Reading can help us clarify our confusion and enhance our perspective.  Books and newspapers show us other worlds, other experiences, and unlike television, allow us the time and the silence to absorb and to question.  We may not agree to what a writer is saying, but even then we’ve learned something about ourselves or discovered how to articulate our own thoughts.”  Eric V. Copage from  Black Pearls.
