Personal Favorites

I have a special bookshelf which I dedicate to my favorite books. Each of the books on this shelf have had some sort of major impact on my life, whether it be helping me through a big decision, helping me to further understand what I want to achieve in life, giving me something to relate to when I needed it most, or just being a truly good story that I could not seem to separate myself from.
It works out quite well for me so that I can have an old favorite right at my fingertips. Theres nothing quite like the familiar words of a favorite book to help you escape from reality for a few moments.
