A book....Read Now
I bought a nice big book last weekend.... a beautiful book of botanical illustrations and designs that were an inspiration for the Art Nouveau movement at the end of the nineteenth century. It will surely end up on my coffee table along with a few other cherished books. I'm glad I got it while I still had the chance! Today Borders closed 400 stores employing 11,000 people. And I'm seeing that some libraries are going "book-less".
I guess I can put a Kindle on my coffee table but its just not the same. I can look at artwork on my computer, enlarged and in great detail, but its not the same as turning the pages of the weighty Audubon's Birds of America, Elephant Folio.
I think I'll just hold on to, lug around, or pass on a few "old school" books. Not for the investment value, but just in case the power goes out.
