A book can help you to kill time.
A good book can teach you a lesson.
A great book can change your view of the world.
An incredible book can change your life.
An astonishing book can change the world.
The power held with the pages (e-pages) of books is incredibly diverse, potent in its simplicity and filled with a potential to change everything. This is why it is paramount that we increase literacy rates not only within our communities but also on a global scale. I wrote this haiku about illiteracy.
Do not let them read,
Said the powerful gentry,
If they read, they’ll know.
(Eli Woodbine – Canada , Toronto, 2016)
