Digital books are wonderful of course, but you can't do this with them:

Kind of scary. It brought back unpleasant memories of dusting my library of several thousand books. It also made me thankful to have digital books replacing many of them. 

Can you imagine how long it took to create that video?

"There's nothing quite like a real book."

Quoted for the truth!

Ha, that was cool. My daughter had to come around and watch it when she heard it.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Many sleepless nights, it said. (The bookstore of course had to return to normal each morning for business hours.) Did you see how long was the list of volunteer reshelvers they had helping them? What fun, though! Such a clever idea.

Beautiful! And while there's nothing quite like the feel (and smell!) of a REAL book, I've found resizable fonts such a pleasure to my eyes in my "old" age!

Great video! While I love the portability of having multiple ebooks in my iPad and the ability to do research electronically through thousands of books in seconds. Nothing beats a real book when reading cover to cover!

Thanks to both Rosie and Richard!            Indeed!                A bright sunshiny cold morning in Easter Canada.  Snow on the ground, but a lovely day!         And enriched with your "sharings" that brought a pleasant smile to my face!                                                        *smile*

                         Peace to all!                       and                        Joy in the Lord!

                                                Hebrews 12:3

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........
