Books are about the Power of Choice :

A building is made brick by brick. A life is made choice by choice. Every book opens a window onto a new world. We see new possibilities and new choices we never knew were there. We read, we write, to find those possibilities, to discover those choices, to take charge of our lives when things aren’t always the way we want them to be.
