Nook vs. Book….
No this is not some weird Dr. Suess tangent, this is a real concern of mine. Today in my French class we had a discussion about whether we preferred to read on a kindle or nook or if we liked to read printed books. I was the only person for printed word. To me, I like to look at books on my shelf and associate memories with certain ones. I can look at the cover of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and know that the sea salt caked on the cover was from one of the best vacations I’ve ever taken. Can a kindle do that?
One of the kids brought up that it was more environmentally friendly, more cost effective, and all around easier to maneuver. While I can understand this, I feel depressed at the thought of losing such a huge part of my life. My goal is to build myself a giant library in my future home, why would I want to reduce that to a rectangle the size of my hand? Maybe I’m being too traditional, as they say, all good things must come to an end. But what about the nostalgia?
I. Can’t. Sleep. I seriously need entertainment of some sort right now… I’m out of movies, tv, books, and dare I say it, dashboard… I’ve been thinking a lot too. What if there was a website for people who couldnt sleep to talk to other people who couldn’t sleep. Like Eharmony for insomniacs… and then I remembered. Chatroulette. Too bad I don’t want to just see dick all night. Still. SOMEONE HELP ME KEEP MY SANITY.
“Your glasses remind me of a librarian. I like books. A lot.” If someone ever said this to me? Well, I do not know what my reaction would be, but it would definitely end well for the person who said it. ;)
I cannot wait to grow up and live in a castle with a library like this. Most girls want to grow up and be princesses, nope, I just want the library.
