You cannot live without food; all creatures in this world need it. Just like food, we cannot live without books. Books, to most people, are their salvation, the strawberry topping of the scrumptious cupcake. They are the life supply, relief, and favorite part of the day. You might be one of those who find themselves craving for a good read the same way you thirst for water. This hunger for books is the hunger caused by your passions, emotions, and needs. As you go through life, you will need nourishment—for your senses, intellect, emotions, to appease you, and satisfy your spiritual hunger. Books feed you so much more than entertainment; they take you on a journey far away, teach you something new, leave you inspired, and see things in a new light. Thus, always feed your mind and soul with great books. These are good reads that will fill you up and prepare you to take on anything in your path.
