Books that will expire / The concept of books for inert readers

Books that will expire
Books that will expire

We left books on the bookshelf after we bought them.We forgot to read them.Then the books became an ornament on our bookshelves.The “ book” which will expier have the same shelf life as an ice-cream,If we don’t read it during the shelf life, the contents of the book will disappear.This will help us develop a good habit of reading.
