Books ~ does anyone remember what those are any more? An actual hardback or paperback book? I certainly hope so. I was on the subway this morning on my way into work when my friend I was with, Mike, and I noticed that there were an unusual number of people actually reading books on the subway. It was nice to see that people have not forgotten about the book itself and not read everything online on a desktop, on an iPad, on your cell phone or a laptop. Some things are better in person. “She said with a wink and a smile!” Like going to the library. Remember that and remember having to check out a book. Don’t get me wrong, the internet has its place (like blogging and talking with you!) and is good for most things, but not everything. I love to actually have a good book in my hands to read or a good magazine like the Archeology magazine I subscribe to. I’m a total history and archeology nerd. I just can’t help it ~ I yam what I yam.
So, enjoy the internet for what it is, but remember, it’s not everything. Keep some of those original books and magazines at home. You’d be surprised how many people you have over will enjoy seeing them.
