E-Reader or Book

You can keep your E-Readers. Give me a book.  I want to feel the weight in my hand. I want to turn the pages.  I want to flip through to the end and take a sneak peak (yes, I'm one of those!).  I want to put my finger on the print. Hear the crisp sound of paper turning.

I know there are those who disagree with me. Emphatically. They want digital or nothing. They want to download every title on their wishlist.  Not me. I want to look at my book shelves and let my eyes gaze the titles before selecting my next adventure.  I love being surrounded by my friends.  There is a certain solace in the peace of a library.

Can you have too many books? NO. No way. Not at all.  No such thing.  Next best thing to a book??? A book catalog. Yep! A chance to drink in the pages and add to my library, pick out gifts, salivate. I'm like a kid in a candy store.  And then the big day arrives. The box is delivered.  My anticipation never wanes. It grows with each order.  I open the box and imagine the look on the face of the recipient.  Priceless.

Can you borrow a book? Ummm... did you notice the beautiful weather we're having?  Can you borrow a book?  How do I say no politely? I'd rather buy a copy for you than loan one of my 'kids' to you.  To have my kids in your hands while you eat your late night snack or if you catch a cold. I can't even bear to think about it.  I know you'll be careful, but accidents happen. Shudder.  Just wait until I get my next catalog. Shipping only takes about 5 days.

Speaking of books... How about a book companion???
