What Do You Like to Hold?
What do you like to hold? What gives you comfort? For Macy it's a toy of any sort, but it's definitely more fun if it's in the lake. For my teenage daughter it's her IPOD. She never leaves home without it and heaven forbid the battery goes dead. My husband has the same IPOD affliction, but he's holding a laptop most of the day. Me, I love to hold a good book. I love to feel the texture of the paper, and have the sense of owning a little piece of someones creativity. I love that I can take it anywhere. Some of you may love your Kindle. I hate to say this, but I really like books made of paper. I've attempted to read a book on my computer, but I didn't finish it. I missed the turning of the pages. If I'm reading a reference book or nonfiction book I love to highlight all the important pieces of information. Do you highlight? Do you remember in school having to erase any marks in your textbooks? I think that's why I like making notes in my books now. I'm not letting the Man (teacher) keep me down. I'll mark in my books anytime I want to. Of My disclaimer: I am not responsible for any of my blog readers marking in library books.)
So what do you like to hold a book or a Kindle? I'm not even going to mention audio books...I'd rather wait for the movie...
