Books: more than a gold mine

DSC_0000159-001Books are a treasure, aren’t they? I want to call them ‘a gold mine’; in fact, more than a gold mine. Ask me why; and I will tell you.

I do agree in toto with Horace Mann who says, “A house without books is like a home without windows.” Who could have said it better?
I don’t consider this to be any distant from what Leon Gutterman thinks when he says, “Without the love of books, the richest man is poor, but endowed withDSC_0000118 this treasure, the poorest man is rich.” Cute, isn’t it?
This is a subject which invites us to spill some ink. That would be worthwhile. I hope you are ready. Let’s take a few questions: what do you think of books? Are they really that important? What makes them so important? What can be the difference between someone who reads and someone who does not?
Camera 360Joseph Addison holds that “Books are the legacies that a great genius leaves to mankind, which are delivered down from generation to generation, as presents to the posterity of those who are yet unborn.” It sounds brilliant doesn’t it?
I am curious to know: what is your take on this?

  2. Books help people teach people the skills needed to improve the quality of their lives. I hope you read my book when it is published soon. It is a self-improvement book to teach people how to obtain their dreams. I would love for you to have a book signing event so that I may encourage others to obtain their dreams.

    • Congratulations on your upcoming book Dr. Davis. I admire you. What I am today is thanks to self-improvement books; so I always pay attention to anyone that I come across. Don’t laugh when I tell you I do not know how to go about a book signing event. Please advise me so that I can do it if it can help you, me or anyone. I am ready to do anything so long as it helps someone somewhere. Again thanks for always being there for me.

  3. Personally, my books are my treasures though I am not rich in money. Books can bring us to see from another perspectives and to increase in knowledge.
