Sample text

So, to conclude: what are books, and why do they matter? A book is a friend, companion, whiler away of time, transporter to another world, a bridge across geography and history, a refuge from the rigours of work, not to mention a possible bed prop and aid to deportment.

Reading is a key that simultaneously opens up our own inner world and that of others.
