Nah, not interested

~*~

Knowing my lurve for reading and computers, my friend recently asked me if I would be buying the newest reading companion...


I said, "It it an amazing piece of technology but nah, I'm not interested in having one."  She looked rather surprised assuming I would lurve to have one.  So I explained what I lurve...

~ Personal Libraries ~
The look, the feel, the smell of hardback paper books...








A book even looks better in my hand...

And if you drop a book, it doesn't break like technology...


I think with time, they even look better than technology.


So many books.... so little time!

And so little time I've had to visit my bloggy friends!  Hope your all doing very well and I'll be by to visit soon!

As you know, I love technology. But a book in your hand is something special.

I completely agree! Nothing can match having a real book.

Sorry you've been so busy lately, but it sounds like a good kind of busy. Happy Birthday to hubby.

As to the technology vs the real thing issue. I'm in full agreement with you. Nothing can replace the feel, smell and experience of a real book and a real library. I'm reading Dracula by Bram Stoker this week. It's good...why haven't I ever read this before?

I agree too! My eyes hurt sooner with a screen too. I love this music you have playing right now, goes great with sitting on the boat with the breaze, very relaxing.

I think I'd like that new piece of technology.
