I've posted about books so many times before. I can't avoid it - they are part of my life and a large part. I've been trying hard to think of a different way of illustrating what books mean to me.
So I started off by an attempt to show that it was the content of the books that was so important - the pages rather than the spine.
But that made me think. Dangerous, I know. It isn't only the content of a book that is important to me, otherwise I'd invest in an e-book reader and at the moment I can't think of anything worse.
Who wouldn't like to run their hands over some beautiful books like that? Looking along a shelf full of old friends?
Who doesn't enjoy riffling through pages until some beautiful words catch the attention?
I love all those things and can't imagine a time when an electronic device will take precedence over the sheer joy of owning books.
Disclaimer: some people's opinions may differ. My sister has always been even more possessive of her books than I am, and has been totally won over by an e-book reader.
