I Love Dead Trees

I have digital books, and a few different eBook readers. I enjoy eBooks, but I have to admit, if I had my druthers, I’d grab a hunk of dead tree any day.

Stranger in a Strange Land

Not only do I like actual books, but I really like old books. Like this beauty here. I found this at the used bookstore for $1.95, and I can’t wait to open it and start reading. The yellow pages and faded text almost transport me to another world. I’m not sure if it’s the age, or the nostalgia — but something about old books just tickles my fancy.

Also, I haven’t read Stranger in a Strange Land since my accident, so it’s a special treat I get to relive! Yay for horrible, life changing, amnesia causing accidents!

  1. Perhaps the book is breaking down in such a ways that the pages become yellow and an odd gas that makes you feel happy is being released.

  2. Oh yes! Don’t forget the smell of old books. That’s very unique. I frequent used book stores a lot. You never know what little gem might be waiting there for you to find. Enjoy your read!
