I'm Reading!

Oooooh, don't interrupt me. I'm reading!

My children probably heard that a zillion times when they were growing up. Or something similar. Dinner burned while I stirred the pot with on hand and held a book in the other. Family impatiently knocked on the bathroom door while I finished "another chapter".

I've always carried a book--or two--in my purse or diaper bag every time I left the house. And vacation? That required an entire bag of books.

Then the e-book revolution came along, making the availability of books even easier. Now I can take a library along with me when I leave my home. I enjoy that convenience, but I also love reading the print books on my library shelves at home.

I grew up with books in my home. My parents had a real reverence for books and I was taught to treat all books with respect. I look at the current generation of youth and wonder if they are growing up with that same respect for books...or if the electronic book is something viewed as less valuable and worthy.

What do you think?



  1. Me too, Anny. I have purse books, car books, bedside table books, now a kindle. Read constantly.

    1. Oh, yeah. Kitchen books, doctor's office books...

  2. Eѵегy ωеekenԁ i used to vіsіt this ωeb pаgе, as i wаnt enјoyment, fоr thе
    reason that this this ѕіte сonations actually pleaѕаnt funnу mаteriаl toо.

  3. I haven't read on a while. I do it mainly on planes or on hols and then I can devour 5 or 6 books easily. I don't care for e-books. Yes, sacriledge but there is is...I'm a herectic

    1. It's great there are all kinds of choices! I utilize most of them!

  4. I love my Kindle, but I still buy print books on a very regular basis. I greatly enjoy browsing through the shelves of the lone bookstore (there used to be five) close to my house. Ebooks are great for portability and cost effectiveness. I know many, many people, however, who don't download books and feel that they are not "real"; quite a blow to my author ego! :)

    1. Yep, me too, Tessie. I have a lot of both!

  5. Tummy fat is a very common issue nowadays.
