Reading

I love to read.
I love books.
I save books.
I love reading to children.
I have no more room for books!
One of the most exciting aspects of impending retirement was about having more time to read. For so much of my adulthood I read about 2-3 books between September and June and then 12-15 in July and August. Now I don't count. I think it's wonderful to read anything, in any form-newspapers(I am a paper-aholic), magazines (too many subscriptions to count), books,of course. My son started reading at 3 with baseball cards. I was offered an old Kindle...hmmmm, thank you,no.
Nothing, I say NOTHING, can replace a book in your hand. I was excited to find this widget on Sherry Truitt's wonderful blog.

Read the Printed Word!


Wonderful! Thanks, Sherry...we're on the same page.

And all of the above is why I am always making bookmarks...shameless self promotion...well, it is my blog!


Oh, and to reduce that book collection and get new ones in return? www.PaperbackSwap.com, which is paperbacks and hardcovers...a win~win trade.

I'm with you! Love to read! I always have a book in progress and some waiting! Last week I just got a new reading gadget...an iPad! Now I can download a book any time of day or night and not have cut down trees in the process! It's a computer too that I'm typing to you now! Loving it!

I'm glad you found that widget. I thought about getting a kindle, but decided against it. I like to hold a book in my hands. I actually still go to the library by bike every few weeks!

I can never see myself with a kindle, something about the texture of a book. I just like going to the library, even though I don't have as much time as I would like.
