In a simple VBA project for Word I have Class Module named Book which has just two properties - Title and Author - both strings.
I would like to be pull data from Sheet1 of a simple Excel Workbook to create a Collection of Books items ( named myBooks). Every book to be added to this Collection  (myBooks) will be created using a record from Sheet1 of the Excel Workbook, such that the value in Column 1 of each record will be the title of the Book and the value in Column 2 of each record will be the Author of the Book. I include a screen shot of the Sheet1 of my Excel Workbook.
Thank you for your help.

Screenshot of the Sheet1 of the Excel Workbook
Dim objExcel As New Excel.Application
Dim exWb As Excel.Workbook

Dim bookTitle As String
Dim bookAutor As String

Dim myBooks As Collection
Set myBooks = New Collection

Set exWb = objExcel.Workbooks.Open("G:\MyFolder\BookShelf.xlsx")

Set excelWorkBook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open("G:\Dr Ahmad\Handover\QuickWord.xlsx")

' I need code in this region which could run some kind of Loop on excelWorkBook  and give me a collection of book objects
' creating a book from all the records in Sheet1 of excelWorkBook such that the value in column 1 of each row will be the title of 
'  the book and the value in column 2 of each row will be the author of the book. 


Set exWb = Nothing
