Books are a tangible and valuable record of the world we live in and the imagination that binds us. Yes, we do have the internet and the age of digitalisation, books however give us a sense of tangibility, a sort of escape from the world we are surrounded by. The crispness of the pages and the bookish aroma that wafts from its depths, all adds to the aura of its attraction.
Books are so many things, knowledge, wisdom, escape, imagination and almost everything else. They can be an inspiration and encouragement. More importantly a book enables us to see the world through the eyes of others.
Throughout history books have been a font of information, knowledge, news, expression and have always made a huge difference on the world at large. The Magna Carta, The Bible, the Gita, The Cantebury Tales, Iliad and Odyssey, The Lord of the Rings and The Catcher in the Rye are all from different eras, topics, dictate a different perception, create a different story and yet they have all influenced the world beyond compare.
A single book has the power to shape the world, and they are known to glue and bind people and cultures together. Books can have an immense influence on civilisation and yet they can be a simple pastime, a much needed respite from a hard days work, a fun filled experience or just a casual pastime
So we suggest you pick up any book that catches your fancy, be it fiction or truth, fantasy or historical, politics or poem. We assure you that you will not be able to put it down. And for the times when you do manage to peel yourself away from its pages, we suggest you check out our collection of beautiful and imaginative bookmarks. You are sure to never forget the page you are on.
