I know I already posted this on Facebook, but I just love the author's way of writing about this topic so much that I wanted to share it again. And technically being a librarian, I'm a bit biased.
Of course I think the Kindle (and such) are space-saving, economical ways to tote thousands of books with you when you're on the go. Whatever gets people to read, count me as a fan. But ain't nothin' compares to the smell of an actual book, the feel of pages between your fingers, the site of them piled by the bed.
And what the author says too ... that there's something still superior to the way you can deal with a book, handle it, control it to your own individual experience. Sometimes we should think of "technology" outside the bounds of a screen and some plastic keys.
I know this is redundant for those of you on Facebook, but for my family & pals who only visit ye ol' blog and (gasp!) don't have Facebook accounts, I feel the need to remind....
....of the CUTENESS.
We all went to the Air Show today in the 100-degree heat, and on Tuesday, Daphne will go in for her first set of immunizations. Not looking forward to that part, but am eager to see what she weighs now. I think she's gonna have mommy's thighs...just sayin.
