Think of the two shyest girls you have known in your life. Select the first name from one and the last name from the other. This will perhaps give you a good inspiration on how they will act while getting over their fears of talking to people.

The Last Unicorn - Peter S Beagle
Hear me out. I know this one sounds childish, but the way Beagle describes the settings and atmosphere in this book is honestly what makes it my favorite. It's almost like Tolkien decided to write a kid's book, or C.S. Lewis wanted to try something a bit different. The detail in each paragraph lends to great worldbuilding and characters. The plot can seem weak at times, but there's always a subtle wisdom that shines through.

Anthem - Ayn Rand
A young man invents electricity in a world where creativity and individualism is banned. Not to mention, the only Ayn Rand novel I can stomach.
The entire a-side of my favorite Rush album, 2112, is loosely based on this book.

Dracula - Bram Stoker
The vampire one, I don't think I even need to introduce it.
Be warned, the best action sequences of this one are in the first few chapters, it tends to slow down for a bit in the middle, but it picks itself up when it needs it.

The Lunar Chronicles - Marissa Meyer
I kind of cheated because this is a series, but imagine Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Snow White in the world of Star Wars. It sounded ridiculous to me until I gave it a shot, and it was well worth it. Fun characters, great action and pacing, well worth a read.

Ready Player One - Ernest Cline
The best way I can describe this one is a post-apocalyptic, Will Wonka-based love letter to the 80's. Really fun book if you're into anything 80's or video gaming.

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
A clever delve into classism and protocols of Edwardian England, with a romantic-based plot that I honestly get really into. I actually couldn't read past the first page of this when I was a kid, but now that I can actually understand the language of the time, it holds up great. That said, I can admit it's a bit more of a feminine book.

Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan
Greek mythology meets Harry Potter and it's pretty incredible. I'll openly admit that I'm including this one on the list out of pure nostalgia, but I find myself re-reading it pretty often.

Holes - Louis Sachar
Stanley Yelnats gets framed for stealing a famous basketball player's shoes, and goes to a reformatory camp for juvenile delinquents. The plot kicks off from there, and the subplot keeps up with it every step of the way. Not to mention, this has one of the closest book-to-movie adaptations I've ever seen (but I've got a soft spot for Sigourney Weaver).

Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea - Barbara Demick
This is definitely the darkest book on this list, seeing how it's a non-fiction book about North Korean defectors. I had to read this one for a history class, but about two chapters in, I was reading ahead of the class in my spare time. Imagine, if you will, reading Orwell's 1984, but knowing every word in it takes place in your reality. It's borderline horror, but an eye-opener all the same. Not for kids in the very least.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams
A hilarious space opera/buddy cop story, delightfully quirky. I'll admit, I've only read the first in the series, but I've got every intention to finish said series someday. The movie adaptation starring Martin Freeman also happens to be one of my favorite comedies.

It may be counter intuitive but writing by mood will likely leave you crashed upon the rocks. Some just jot ideas down when they get them and later go back and review such. But the craft of writing would seem to require more disciplined approach than relying on mood. Whatever system you use, you apply it religiously. This article may be helpful:

Hi did this as a project at University. All books have a ISBN number that is unique to every book .
Usually library uses the first three letters for the Authors surname
and then a three digit code .
if using a data base you would either assign field with Alpha numeric or have two fields one alpha number is and the other as numeral .
ISBN would be a good field to have also

maybe you could ask a local library how they do their numbering
or look at

Draw the outline of your story, sort of a map with each chapter, roughly describe the main topics of each chapter. where does your story start and how does it end? What's the main theme? who are the main characters?(create a character profile for each character) what are the conflicts?

Books never lose battery. Books never need to be charged. They do not need a password or a charger. There should be no fear of it being stolen. Books are the most valuable gifts available. I know books can never be defeated because they are evergreen

Authors earn money from their book sales in royalties or an advance. An advance is a sum of money that is given to an author by the publisher before the book comes out.
