Happy World Book Day!
Books have been taking us to series of never-ending knowledge. Open a book and you'll drown in it - thrown into different settings and time zone makes you exhilarated and excited to explore the new world while absorbing the knowledge you found throughout the journey. The words, chapters, and pages found in a book leads us to dream and imagine the stories written by remarkable dreamers with an outstanding imagination. It is true then, "Books are uniquely portable magic".
