The Only Way to Read

I like books. Hardcover books.

Like the look of them on a shelf. Get several shelves of them together and it is just a sight to behold.

I got books, got lots of books, currently they are either in the corner of my room or in the closet, but some day I’m gonna get me a wall of shelves to put all my books on.

Not sure what it is about having a book in my hands that makes me feel good. Not a paperback book, not an e-book printed out on copy paper, but a hard cover book with the sleeve still on it, sitting somewhere just reading it.

The question being asked today is What things do you still prefer in their traditional, handmade version?

And my answer is books. Now, I love my Kindle, it is very convenient and I know that it saves trees and is easier to pack 100’s of books in a suitcase using an e-reader, but it is not the same. Reading on the computer is not the same, convenient but not the same. I like books, hard cover books.

That is my story and I am sticking to it. Nothing profound today, nothing deep, nothing funny, nothing sad, just letting you know that I like books, the old fashioned way

Man in recovery from everything, looking for a little help, inspiration and direction.... Have spent the last 25 years working in big business, getting lost in all the chaos, not feeling like what I did mattered. By no means am I a professional writer nor do I even think I am that good, but it is something I love to do. Getting lost in a world of words, even for just a little while is why I started my blogs. In reality, at the age of 49 I am trying to find my voice. To find my passion. Maybe starting a little late, but better late than never. I write for me, I enjoy reading other's thoughts very much as well and look forward to the day that I can hold an extended, intelligent, meaningful conversation with YOU View all posts by joatmon14
