Simply celebrating life
I do not knowWhat will be on showBut I like to read a bookWithout that glow....Give me a paper bookMy dear friendThere must be some textWe do not electronically sendSomething to do with paper and inkSomething that makes us think.Or take a drinkBut lasts more than a wink....
Love your work, Sandy!As someone who embraces technology in all its forms, my vote nonetheless would be for a paper-and-ink book too!
A paper book has always been my love. I romanticize the smell and feel of the paper as the black ink lifts of the page to carry me away into whatever treasures unfold.I scoffed at the e-reader for many months. But now I eat my words because I am the proud owner of a Nook. It will never replace my books but goodness it is so handy right now as I bounce between hospitals with both parents ill. I love being able to read my book or read aloud my parents favorites and have my music all in one small item that goes in my purse. Plus it plays sudoku when I can't concentrate on a story. How cool is that?Have a blessed day today!
Jules,I hope your parents recover soon. I really enjoyed your perspective on the Nook v paper books and how one will do what the other doesn't.
Dear David,I haven't come by yet to say "welcome back" butn ow I have come to realize I actually missed your irreverant verses and wonderful photography.It's wonderful to have you back.
Wonderful to see you here, SpacedLaw - and I'm so glad you endorse the irreverent verse!
A book in the hand.... Is worth much more, and....Technology has gone too farFor this Granny, its beginning to jar.Good Reading!Maggie XNuts in May
Ill have to use the Dictionary and the www an awful lot to make a fitting response to that one. All I can come up with is aI'll just have to by a bookthat would let me be a cookbut I'm afraid my fannywould get a slap from nanny
Maggie, I'm all for technology, and here is a lot to be said about the convenience of an e-reader, but books just have an extra human dimension!
Nice work, RuneE - much to be admired!
Not too sure if gran will like it!She may in fact tell me to 'bike it!'She'd give a look and hard lookand say. "Give to me a proper book!
Barnes and Noble books cost too muchBut their atmosphere and suchIs inviting and comfy that is clearMy pocketbook is too small my dear
Barnes and Noble? I had to lookTo find out what it is, this Nook?It's like a Kindle from AmazonWhich you can also read with no light on.(I'd still rather have a proper book anyday)
Great idea, the Nook. Silly name, though. Will poor B & N always be in the shadow of Amazon?
paper books - anytime, all the time. Well written
Eddie, I want to know exactly what Granny's reaction was!
Thanks, TechnoBabe - really appreciate the trouble you take to reply in verse!
Ayak, you did so well to rhyme with the word "Amazon"!
Hi Willow, isn't it strange to think how much is spent on giving new products the "right" name!
Thanks, Rajlakshmi - I'm happy to read a book either way, in print or electronically - but my study would be bare without all its "real" books!
