A Gift


"Lifelines: The Black Book of Proverbs" by: Askhari Johnson Hodari and Yvonne McCalla Sobers is a gift. I received this book a few weeks ago in exchange for reviewing it here at Tea & Honey Bread. It is a collection of some of the most beautiful quotes and sayings I'd never read. Through the years, lover of words that I am, I've amassed quite a collection of quote and poetry books: this one comes close only to "The Prophet" by: Kahlil Gibran. From birth to death and rebirth, with all milestones between, "Lifelines", has a proverb for you.


This book is available for purchase at Amazon.com, and I am offering one [1] copy to a lucky Tea & Honey Bread reader. To enter, leave a comment on this post, between now and Saturday, March 20th at midnight. A winner will be drawn randomly and announced on Sunday morning, apres cafe. If you do not have a blog, please include your e-mail address in the comment section so I am able to reach you should you win.


Good fortune will not happen to you;
good fortune is given to him who seeks it-Egypt




Peace and good fortune

I love the book of proverbs for all people, so I know this book will be relevant and full of wisdom.

I would love to add this book to my collection! I know it's probably very "un-proverbishly-like" to say this, but I hope I win! ;)

I'd love to have a copy of the book, I think I contributed one of the proverbs in there! One of the author's is a friend.
