"Some legends are told,
Some turn to dust or to gold
But you will remember me."

The reason why I am quoting Fall Out Boy in this book recommendation article, is because I feel that these lyrics adequately convey how I felt after reading these books.

There is no point in my life when I won't be able to remember these legendary pieces of art.
