...to relax, to entertain myself, to learn and explore, to think, to feel, to live.
We only live once (so far as I can tell) so why live just our lives? Grab some books and live the life of many!
The very essence of books is lovely. Books have such a unique fragrance. They have character, you can learn a lot about a person from the titles on their bookshelf.
All in all, books are great.
