I love books. Not a day can go by where I don't have to read a bit of a book before shutting my eyes for sleep. At times I even have more than one book on the go. Our local library is also an excellent source for books.
I think if I was one to buy more books than I do, one of the new E-Readers might be a good thing to invest in. I do buy some books, ones that I want to keep and read over, but otherwise the library serves me well enough. I usually only read a book once, so not too worth buying it.
There is just something about having a book in hand, the feel and the weight of it, turning the pages, getting close to the end of the story that I don't think an E-Reader would fulfil. You know, curling up on the couch with a good book. Just not the same I think with a reader!
I am always curious about old worn well used books as well. I wonder who besides me read this book. How many people enjoyed it? What did they think of the story? Have they lasted this long because they are a good read? The rough textures of the book covers, the thickened pages, the cracked spines, the smell of the yellowed pages all leave a mark and tell thier own story.And I would like to know that story as well!
