I think it reminds me of Star Trek. Much of our technology seems to be beyond what they had now! But remember how Captain Kirk had an antique book and pair of reading glasses?
I heard recently that Amazon.com now sells more ebooks that physical books. And our Borders recently closed. I'm guessing because people aren't buying books anymore. Where am I going to sit and read and drink coffee now?
Well, I'm still buying books! And reading them. And decorating with them. I'm sharing some of my favorite book photos from Pinterest. Don't just leave your books on the shelf. Stack them on tables or the floor, lay them on the coffee table, open them to your favorite part...
As you saw in a recent post, I'll have some books available for sale on my shelves at Room With a Past next week. There are some great titles for teachers! This photo below was one of my favorites. Reminds me of when I used to read paperbacks in the tub and they'd get all soggy. You can't do that with an ipad! :-)
I'll leave you with a quote from Ray Bradbury and let you make up your own mind about ebooks/ibooks, "(in response to Kindle) Those aren’t books. You can’t hold a computer in your hand like you can a book. A computer does not smell. There are two perfumes to a book. If a book is new, it smells great. If a book is old, it smells even better. It smells like ancient Egypt. A book has got to smell. You have to hold it in your hands and pray to it. You put it in your pocket and you walk with it. And it stays with you forever. But the computer doesn’t do that for you. I’m sorry."
