Books Are For Reading

Caught this article in yesterday's PW. Books For Decoration.

While I totally understand the concept, it's very sad for those people who are missing out on something the rest of us thoroughly enjoy. Something we are incredibly passionate about. Books.

One would hope that these people actually do read, and have real books stashed somewhere. On their ereader or iPad perhaps? Imagine missing out on the comfort you get from stacks and stacks of books you've read and enjoyed.

How many hours have we spent, transported to another world, another life, by someone's words. Haven't you felt the thrill of sharing one of your favorite books with a friend. Or recommending one to someone because it gave you hours of pleaure? Words have power all their own.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

  1. Heh. You know, the owner of a shop who sells my books told me she doesn't read at all herself, but likes to keep books around her house so she looks smart!
