Also, Ruskin does not agree with all books being good, as well as not agreeing with the fact that all good books are not necessarily meant to be intentionally written. He gave the example of letters one writes to his friends related to life's events like travels and studies. If the language and description of the letters is appropriate and rich, some day they might end up compiled to form a "good book". And finally, the purpose of a good book is to make one persons voice and teachings be heard by millions, so that the enlightening council of this particular person does not remain limited to the knowledge of few.
