Ask yourself: can anyone write *all books* as a category of objects?

"Books in general" is "les livres" in situations where **all and any books** are considered, as in:

- Books are my best friends = Les livres sont mes meilleurs amis.

Take a closer look at this sentence: In "you write books", "books" is only the plural of "a book". Therefore, the plural of "un livre" is "des livres".
