    This reminded of this quote: “I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating mostly consists of building enough bookshelves.” – Anna Quindlen

  2. We have a Little Free Library in front of our next-door neighbour’s house, so the temptation to bring “just one more” book home is ever-present! We do put a few books IN the library too, but the incoming definitely outnumber the outgoing. Am I apologizing? No. 🙂

    A true bibliophile is hard to come by lately….
    The e-reader can lose its battery power
    The computer is useless without power (e-reader takes longer)
    BUT —

    The book carries easily, works in DIRECT sunlight, works without power, and is much easier to locate a favored passage. (Best part, can be autographed by the author!)

    After a hurricane struck, I was reading (by candle light) while others were bored.

    Vivat libri!

      Those are some of the reasons I love real books too, PB.

    • Yesterday morning on the subway as I was struggling to balance my giant hardcover book on my arm, I briefly contemplated an e-reader. Then last night lying in bed with that same book, I rejected the idea again. I love physical books no matter how heavy they get.

  4. I do so love my books too. They’re immensely valuable to me. My special collection have a special bookshelf beside my computer desk. And I’ve yet to come across an e-reader which matches the joy of being able to quickly decipher the highlights of a book.
