“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.” – Mark Twain

Every year I aspire to read a number of books simply because I love to read. My house is full of books of all sorts – memoirs, non-fiction, fiction, self-improvement, biographies and autobiographies, classics, spiritual, informative, and so on. I have a love affair with books. They educate me, entertain me, and comfort me.

James McBride, author of “The Color of Water”, with his beloved mother
