As an avid reader, I look forward to opening a new book. I love the smell of the paper. The feel of the pages. I’m careful to not bend the cover or crease the spines.
Don’t get me wrong – I will always love and buy “physical” books, but I’m no hard-copy snob. I love “opening” e-books almost as much. Though I do live in fear of my phone battery dying… Always at the best part, right?
It doesn’t matter which type of book I’m opening, the experience is the same for me. I’m not opening a book. I’m opening a whole new world. I’m opening another person’s imagination, stepping inside, and having a look around.
How exciting is that!
There’s a meme (several actually) that goes around Facebook pretty regularly that says, “If you think reading is boring, you’re doing it wrong.”
I couldn’t agree more.
