“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
― Marcus Tullius Cicero
Not a voracious reader…
not a fast reader…
not always an interested reader….
but a reader none the less…
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…
oh how I do love books.
Real honest to goodness books.
No e-readers or iPads.
But the tangible, hold it in my hand, turn the page, smell that bookish
musty smell love of a book.
I know the arguments about books…
those being that books are expensive, cumbersome, heavy, accumulating,
outdated, hard to travel with… as the list goes on and on.
Hand a kid a “notebook”, iPad or something else equally electronic and techie
and you’ve got a quiet, occupied, engaged kid…
And sadly I suppose you do.
Engaging the mind you say.
