5-9: Read the following passage and answer the questions given below.
John Ruskin says, “All books are divisible into two classes, the books of the hour and thebooks of all time.” Similarly some books are read by 95% of people for some years and then they are virtually forgotten. Take for example, ‘detective’ novels. We may not have heard about the authors of detective novels like Erle Stanley Gardner. Although the taste of reader is changing, 5% of people continue to read ‘classics’. Mark Twain said, “A classic is a book which people praise but don’t read.” Books are good companions and good counsellors. They are like good friends. As a good friend walks in when others walk out, books also walk in to console you. They offer the best solace you think of.
