“Books are the mirrors of the soul.” –Virginia Woolf
Books have the power to transform anyone’s life. And that power is controlled and released by the writer of the book.

While the words challenge the way we think, the story opens up a world that is limitless and more often than not has the power to have a powerful positive impact on us.
At Women’s Web, we invite readers to share their thoughts on one interesting question that is picked by the team and posted on our Facebook page every Tuesday, calling it #TuesdayTalkies. We try picking questions that would interest readers and put them in their thoughts. Some of the best replies are posted in our next story and one of them also gets to win a ‘Women’s Web’ mug. Why don’t you try your luck in the next week’s question?
