BLACK PEARLS MAGAZINE TOP 20 BOOKCLUBS

We Appreciate the Book Lovers of the World!


EDC Creations, The Sankofa Literary Society and The Black Authors Network are proud to announce the launch of the 2011-2012 "Give the Gift of Knowledge Campaign," bringing readers and authors together to help improve literacy. We encourage all readers to purchase books to give as gifts all year long. Each year thousands of people - educators, concerned parents, community leaders, authors, poets and publishers - devote their time and resources to presenting the reader with great books!

However, too many outstanding books do not get the attention and reader support that they deserve. It is our mission to connect readers with these hidden gems and bring them books that will change their lives. Let's "Give the Gift of Knowledge" and help to strengthen our future generations!

We would like to honor the men and women who are the force behind the "Give the Gift of Knowledge Campaign." The featured groups create th…

EDC Creations Reviewer Introduction

Give the Gift of Knowledge Campaign

Hello!
Thank you for your interest in becoming a part of the EDC Creations book review team! I would love to add you on the roster as a reviewer. We do not pay our reviewers cash , but we will keep your reading supply up with new releases and will give Amazon Gift Certificates for the reviewers with the most printed reviews per month. I don't require any contracts and you can start and stop at your leisure. However, if we don't get written reviews back within a reasonable time, we will ask why.

This is about unity, expanding our reading selections and just having fun!  The only thing we want from you is to tell at least 10 people about a great book and a written review. You do not have to be a professional writer, just become a reader who wants to express their appreciation for books!


Reviewing Printed Material
Before becoming a reviewer I need to know these things. You can send your answers to the following email address: edc_dg@yahoo.com .

2010 EDC CREATIONS
LITERARY EXCELLENCE AWARDS


These are the books I personally read during 2010 for our Sankofa Literary Society (SLS) reading challenge. I read a total of 115 books for the year and this is my list of the best books from that group.

The books were submitted for review by the author, publisher or given to me as gifts. Each of the books on this list are considered 4-5 star reads. They are NOT listed in order by ranking. Each title below will enrich the lives of the new owners! I hope you will take the time to explore this list and to email this to at least 20 others, so that you too can Give the Gift of Knowledge!

The books below will make great gifts all year long! View all of our Best Books Recommended Reading Lists here: http://edcmagazine.blogspot.com/.  Please follow our blog for more exciting news on the authors and the books coming out in 2011.

2010 Best Bookcovers 
Awarded by the Sankofa Literary Society





The Sankofa Literary Society and its founder Ella Curry are focused on the issues and lifestyles that define today's avid readers — what they read, what they want out of their literature, how they connect to each other, what motivates them and how they feel about their community as a whole.

Many have stated, “There is no African American village…it’s dead,” we don’t feel that way. The Village is here, the village in now! Expand your horizons! We are a community of 11 bookclub units, 4 social networks and 22 nurses who want to enrich our community with books and the written word. Listed below are the books we have read in 2010 presented by small press publishers, traditional publishers and self-published authors. Join us today to add your voice and experiences to our union. Come on in and join this movement to Give the Gift of Knowledge!
