I have a good collection of my own books. I bought them with my pocket money. Many of them I got as prizes and many others were given to me as gifts on my birthdays. There is hardly any book in my personal library which I have not read at least twice. And some of them I have read many times over. Every time I read them, I find a new meaning, more enjoyment, and some new experience. They are my best friends. I never feel sad or alone because of them.
