Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever." ~Ghandi

What complex creatures we are. Our thoughts, our dreams, our hopes, they are the essence of what it means to be human. Books are the key to exploring that world, a different journey for each person who has walked this earth.
