So I'll be controversial here ... why more books than blogs? Isn't the medium simply evolving? We don't read scrolls anymore ;-) Are words less beautiful on a screen than a page? Just finished Museum of Innocence, and I think the language was so exquisite that I would have loved it just the same if it had been spelt out in fleas on the back of a camel ;-)
But there's is still something magical about the smell and feel of a book in your hands...
Great point, Annie. I don't have any problems with the media used to read books - if anyone wants to buy me an ipad to read them, I'd gladly read books on it.My point though, is that I need to encourage myself to read books - fiction - and stay off the computer sometimes. It's so easy to read blogs and online news and jump from one link to another that sometimes I crave the quiet solitude of sitting with a book in my hands.I'd also love to learn how to read Flea :)
