As much as I embrace technology, I love the feel and smell and ritual I guess, of holding and enjoying a good book.
... reads about five books a week normally. I got him an e-reader for papa's day and he loves it. For me it saves space in my house.
Call me old fashioned, but I am a bibliophile. Maybe its because of my history degree, but anywhere in my house where there is a bookcase or a shelf of any kind, we have books. I tried to count them once, when moving from my parents' house, and there were nearly 1,000 of them
I can carry around thousands of books in one hand with my iPad.
Nothing like the smell & feel of a book! Plus, when I see how far I've read, or how far I still need to read, it's a major motivator!!
...have the iPad, but I refuse to buy books for it, so I read the web, pdfs, free books on it
I'm big on technology, but I really don't think of it as the answer to everything, including things that I don't even really think of as problems.
