With Kindles/Nooks/Tablets, it seems like books are on its way out. I LOVE books. Written words that evoke powerful imagery encased in a beautifully designed book cover is a work of art and should be well displayed in every home. My library is really my art gallery.
I can't stress enough about the importance of books!!
There is nothing like a set of hard back books with covers on a shelf or bookcase to add colour and warmth to a room and then you get the pleasure of reading them. Replace that with a computerized reader sitting on a plastic table. Blah. Sometimes, so called progress is not progress at all.
