E-reader vs Library

It was about a year ago that I made the decision to buy myself an e-reader.  It was a difficult decision to make because I do love to read books.  I love the feel of a book.  Being able to curl the left side of a paperback and turning pages of a good “page turner”.  A good friend had an e-reader, (Kindle), and she said as much as she also loved books she loved her e-reader more.  So, after longingly looking at the Kindle on Amazon, I just bit the bullet and bought one.

Today, I went to the library to pick up some books for my mom to read while she recuperates from her back surgery.  I realized that I miss going to the library.  I miss the atmosphere that the library has.  I also realized, the library missed me.  I had a nice conversation with the librarian about why she hadn’t seen me in so long.  As much as I do love my Kindle, I may just have to continue getting my mother books to read, even after she has gotten better.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
