Suppose you own a bookshop. To manage it efficiently, you need to keep a
detailed record of the books available in your shop. You also want to check
the titles and the number of copies available per title so that you can
order stock for new titles and restock old titles. You also want to track
the overall sales.
You have to store all this information in an organized form so that you
can easily retrieve it when required. One way to organize data is to use a
database, which is an organized list of data.
