On books

18 08 2008

I love reading. I love books. I love the smell of them, the feel of them, the weight of them. I love bookmarks to be put into books. I love the smooth spines of new books. I love the crinkled spines of old books. I love the characters in the books, the situations, the conflicts, the resolutions, the voices in the books… I don’t think there’s anything about books I don’t like about books.

Have I said too much? 🙂

I am thrilled with your comments. As an educator and an author of Children’s Literature, it is refreshing to see your ideas on line. Please consider reading my latest book “Good? Grief! ” by Cathy Temple Eichelberger. I think you and all of the children in your life will enjoy it.

Books are an absolutely wonderful thing and I am not just saying that because I own a bookstore. If only more people were as passionate about books as we seem to be here than the world would not have to worry about the Kindles taking over. How can a plastic computer with a screen every give anyone the same texture, feeling and sensation as a real book does. Have you ever noticed how the pages in every book are different – their texture, the way they are cut, the way the edge feels as you rub your fingers on it while you read. I hope that the kids growing up today and the ones that will be born in the near future are not neglected from those privileges.

I’m glad that there are people who care about the physical act of reading itself. It is a restful and therapeutic activity, and the feeling of paper in your hands plays a major role. It is important. I don’t see me ever going the way of the Kindle.

You haven’t said too much; you said it just right.

I particularly like really old books. The kind the with the covers falling off of the bindings a bit a-skew and you have to turn each page like it’s the broken wing of a fallen bird. Leather-bound, hand-stamped, copyrighted-before-my-grandparents-could-walk, books.

I love all those things and more =] second hand book shops are great, I love walking along the shelves running my hand along the books.

It is soooo good to here your comments – they echo mine entirely. When I find a book I like I gobble it up – and am then back to having to find another!

If you love books, I am starting a website called BuzWriter (buzwriter.com) where individuals who love to read can also review or comment on recent books they have read. I am also going to have discussion boards, public and private book club options. Check us out; we will be going live in Mid-Jan 2010.

Where you are the critic!
