    I do believe books are coming back … if so, we may become wise and wealthy, too! But I can’t part with books. Great lighting, Carmen!

  • Thank you Margot. I am glad to know that others will never stop buying real books.
    I understand the need to save trees also… but it seems they are taking away for us to own a book or music etc. Hugz for stopping in & your compliment.

    I have to totally agree with you about books and my 18 year old daughter adaores old books and hunts then out in charity shops, You cannot beat a smell of a new book or the feel of a leather bound cover, the weight of a book in your hand. E reader just does not do it for me.

  • Thank you Karen to accept this one in Tools. I Love that your daughter loves them too.
    I wish I had collected that young. Yes E books just read.. have no feel.

    Lovely shot Carmen. I totally agree ~ I love the smell and feel of a book in my hands :)) Reading is one of the best pleasures and privileges in life :))

  • Thank YOU Renee. I am happy to know so many others prefer the book to the e readers. read a good book is such a pleasure. Your mind gets to fill in the color & create the images of the characters…places. The feel of the book & smell of the old books.. has a life of it’s own. Hugz for stopping in & your compliment.
