Books are the most powerful tools that add value to one’s life. Consuming literature broadens our mind, helps us to make formed decisions, and gives us access to knowledge we would normally be unaware of. The information they provide is then transferred from generation to generation, communities, societies and even individuals all over the globe.
In the last decade, we have seen a shift in the publishing industry with the emergence of electronic books and digital media. People are straying from hardcover literature and newspapers and turning to free content found on the web.
For that reason, United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) is celebrating the World Book and Copyright Day on Saturday 23, April. Their aim is to protect the copyright law and to encourage young people to see the importance of reading. Through this event, a 20% discount on any book bought on this day will be donated to the Equal Education Campaign (EEC) (http://www.equaleducation.org.za/).
“Books can be purchased and donated in the shop for collection by EEC the following week. Support this worthwhile cause, and help us to celebrate the Book along with the rest of the world by promoting literacy in our country,” according to UNESCO.
The staff at Creative Consulting & Development Works are book feins and love sharing insightful literature. Click here to check out some of our most recent book reviews, found on our quarterly newsletter, Development Talk.
