Hi Sir,
While writing the Literature Review the problem that I've been facing is that I am only saying these books ought to be read but can't provide a logical reason as to why I should read them as most of these I have not managed to read yet. It will be great if you could share a sample of a literature review for this assignment in the class. Probably that is the only solution to having this sorted out. Thanks
