I have taken the pledge and so should you. A very dear friend of mine recently received the Kindle as a gift and loves it. At first I had no freaking clue to what she was talking about and when she explained it to me I found myself both, happy for her and slightly sad for the world. To think you can now buy and then read books electronically is disheartening. Being a reader, theres nothing like holding a new book in your hands, opeing up the crisp pages to find a whole new world just waiting for you to dive into. Or how about something as simple as turning the pages, knowing you are one step closer to the end of a mystery?! No more book marks? No more bookshelves?! I often find that one of the most telling things about a person is what you can find in their book nook, bookshelf, bookcase (whatever you wanna call it). You can get a real feel for a persons interestes, hobbies, passions and so on by just taking a quick glimpse at their book collection, right? Well I think it would be a trajedy if this no longer became an option. So hop on the bandwagon and take the pledge! :-p http://readtheprintedword.org/

Printed word only for me too! I can't stand reading from a computer!
Hey – thanks for stopping by my blog. I love the name of your blog!!
Thanks for commenting! I am glad I found your blog. what are you currently reading. I just picked up American wife. It is very good so far.
you are so right about this. I got the book Bonjour tristesse by Francoise Sagan as a CD, and it simply feels fraud.
I really like people like you, cause you keep some true things where they should be. It's about valuing things for real.
Hope to hear more from you!
I have a Kindle and love it. However, there are some books I have to read in paper. The good thing is that I now spend a fraction of the money I used to spend and the real books that I have and display are books I truly love.
yah, electronic this, electronic that… convenience, convenience, convenience…
what happened to tradition and taking the time to enjoy things rather than rush around all the time?
I feel the same way!
TOTALLY agree with reading real books, besides, I like the smell of books too!
Thanks for the windswept lion photo link – it's brilliant 🙂
I just cannot associate anything electronic with books…its HORRIBLE!The smell of the books…the piles and PILEs of new books..shelves full of known companions…they give a happiness that cannot be compared!I take the pledge!
