E-Readers are great...but let's never do away with REAL, HANDHELD BOOKS...not only would we deprive ourselves of the tactile pleasure...but the wonderful smells as well! (and how I love my bookshelves with books on them!)
Bejeweled BOOK OF HOURS at Victoria Albert Museum, England by Kotomicreations, photographer, via Flickr. Stunningly beautiful! They don't make them like this anymore! (Wish they did, I maybe could afford a knock-off, cut-glass version! :-)
This is amazingly beautiful. There is something really special 'bout that feeling, the one you get every other time you read that book. It makes you realise how you have changed and grown and it's like the book grew with you!
