The small output of a small mind in a small corner of a very large world. Or, maybe the exact opposite...
In the not too distant future I will begin buying bound books. I can read them without batteries, dry them out and still read if they get wet, tear them up to use as a fire starter in the event of an emergency, tear them up and use them as bottom cleaners in the event of an emergency of a different nature, cut out their centers and hide handguns inside them, write notes in the margins of ones on which I want to make comments, tear up the pages and use for mulch, hide U.S. currency between the pages, use them for interesting decorations, stock a bookcase with them, share them, copy them (whether legal or not),feel the weight of a good large one in my hands, turn the pages adding ever so slightly to the suspense, smell the library aroma of them, taste them on my finger tips after wetting my fingers to continue turning pages, use them to throw at a mouse or other vermin like a jerk then pick up and keep reading...and on and on and on. Sure, electronic book readers may be all the big fad but I will stick with paper books too.All the best,GB
GlennB, I am a big fan of the dead-tree format. I own a few hundred of those. The eReader has its place too. :)Cheers!
First book being read on the new Kindle? The Road to Serfdom.
Got mine last week. WooHoo! New books w/o leaving my recliner? Plug in the I.V. Honey, I'm going to be here awhile!
