Books   Leave a comment

I know many will say they are clunky and heavy but….

There is nothing like the smell of a book (new or old). You can’t replicate this via technology.

You can drop them and they don’t break.

You don’t need to recharge them.

If you join a library they are completely free.

You can get them a bit wet in the rain or in the bath or accidentally spill a cup of tea on them and, after a bit of drying out, they still work.

You can throw them at someone who annoys you without breaking it or them.

You can use them to hold up wonky pieces of furniture.

They are beautiful to look at.

You can take them out at any time and touch them, smell them and read your favourite passage again and again and again.
