As some of you know, I'm a member of "WOW" Women of Wisdom, an all womens bookclub that meets once a month to discuss a book that was chosen by the host/moderater of the month ~ Our meeting for this month is this Saturday @ Red Robin ~ So I headed over to my neighborhood bookstore (Zahra's) and purchased the book of the month "Be Careful What You Pray For" by Kimberla Lawson Roby ~ Now mind you, I should have picked this book up several weeks ago, so for the next couple of days, I will be reading non-stop to finish this book by Saturday (SMH.....Procrastination....something I'm definately working on)
Zahra's Books N Things is one of the top rated Black owned Bookstores that carries pretty much every book that has been puplished by a black author ~ They carry all the new releases and if it's not in stock they will take your contact information and give you a call as soon as the book arrives.
Zahra's carries lots of authentic African artifacts and art, straight from Africa ~ The owners personally travel to Africa to pick up different pieces that are displayed and sold in the store ~ This bookstore is a great place to buy gifts from the Cidne Wallace Collection and they sale many pieces by Annie Lee as well.
They buy and sell used books at a discounted price as low as 95% off , and they have hundreds of books to chose from with prices as low as $3.00 ~ They also carry oils, calendars, purses, totes and little trinkets that are great for collecting or giving away as gifts
The location is perfect (Corner of Plymouth and LaBrea in Inglewood, CA) and there is plenty of parking in the back ~ If you're ever in the area, Zahra's is definately a joint worth checking out ~ Happy reading!
