There are books out there women can take up. A book is a dream that you hold in your hand.

As Harold Kushner said, “I think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense.” Surf the internet. Broaden your horizon and venture into acquiring more than you already know.

Remember great books help you understand, and they help you feel understood.
