A Life Less Interesting
I agree, Dive. I remember being taken home to meet one boyfriend's parents and did not see even one book in their house. Nuthin'.Then again what if the books' topics pertained to taxidermy, how to dig a pit, porno and Nazi memorabilia?
Hey! You've been peeking at my shelves!
I wonder what books Divine had??
Books are still cool. They just come in a different format than they used to, is all. Reading rates are up, statistically, especially among young people. We can thank Ms. Rowling, among others.It's like records. Do you buy records? Do you even buy CDs? You probably download music these days. But you still listen to music.I love paper books, they are fine objects. But the difference is just that: paper.
I shudder to think, Ms.M.I'm still a fan of the physical object, Petrea. I've downloaded precisely one book and no music. I have a wall of classical and jazz CDs in an upstairs room and a huge vinyl collection which I still play (and add to … Prelude Records in Norwich - my favourite music shop - shifts more vinyl now than at any time since the seventies. Yay!).Staring at a screen makes my eyes sore.
Depends how desperate you are....maybe just don't do it twice?????
Some of us don't get the chance even once!
