A book has a life of its own - a life that may offer hope or despair, of peace or war, of love or hate. A life you might admire, loath, or envy. It may not be your life, yet you may wish it were. A life you might come back to, again and again, to find some missing element in your own existence. You may find a solution to your own puzzle, or find concerns you never considered, nevertheless, a book has much to offer.
