Just a Book II

In response to the young lady from Mifflinburg High School about a book. I couldn't agree with you more. There is nothing like holding a real book or walking into a library or book store and smelling that wonderful smell of books.

I haven't been in school for a very long time but one of my fondest memories was ordering new books in grade school and then counting the days until they arrived. This was a joy that came every month. Do the children today get to experience this joy?

I always have my "nose in a book" and I guarantee you that curling up on a cold winter's day with a cup of hot tea and a book can not be accomplished in the same wonderful way holding a Kindle. You must hold that book. To the future generations, please don't let the experience of holding a "real" book ever go away.
