I know that it’s becoming handy, environment-saving and practical to own e-books than actual books you flip through. However, there is something about the latter, its papers and inks and its smell that gives the initial pleasure (that sure sounds weird) but really, touching the book and opening its pages seems more profound than electronically flipping the Corning Glass of your device. I initially bought a tablet for the purpose of reading but after reading 1 book, I told myself I will not go back to reading a nice story and have to make sure I do not run out of battery.
Anyway, today marks my insane realization of being able to resist clothes, bags and shoes but not books.
Here’s to reading Mitch Albom’s “The Timekeeper”.
I hope I will not cry.
