Buying a book is like buying a sweater. You have to touch it, to feel it…to check it for softness and warmth. Breathe it in. Try it on. To me, buying a book this way is like wrapping yourself in cashmere. Downloading it onto a Kindle is like settling for sack cloth.
Remember…every time you visit a bookstore and select a book that looks good and feels right but you turn around and download it onto an electronic device, a muse somewhere falls down dead. I don’t know what I’d do without mine. I depend on her for inspiration, motivation, and consolation. So be careful, OK?
We thank you.
