Turn the Page


Hemingway I miss books! Everything is in digital form now, even newspapers and magazines. Although this does present some great advantages, I like the nice crisp feel of turning the pages of a book. I miss the smell of a book. I miss the satisfaction of turning that last page and shutting the book for a final time with an authoritative snap. I like to fold the pages down, write in the margins and even occasionally smash bugs with my book. You can’t do that with a digital copy. Of course, if it wasn’t for E-books, my shelves would be overflowing (more than they already are). But for me, sometimes only a hard copy will do. Especially for the classics. And, if I didn’t own those big, heavy masterpieces, how would I flatten flowers for my craft projects?
