What makes a good book?

The smell of the pages
The character(s) who'll brisk you away on their own adventures
A scene or setting that you could find yourself lost in
A moral or lesson that will stay with you forever, eternal gratifying
A joy in reading, a satisfaction of completion or happiness
The calm or serenity of meaning and thought
A story beyond comprehension
Or something more...
