This shouldn't need to be explained. A good book is irreplaceable. It makes you feel and, in doing so, satisfies something within you. It plays with the faculties of your mind and takes you on a journey or educates you about something new and interesting. It captures you, takes you away and then places you (sometimes gently and sometimes not so gently) back where you were as a new person. Good books still continue to amaze me because just as I feel like something new will never be written and I will never be impressed again, I am.
