Real books, or electronic readers. Which do you prefer?
We have a Kindle and, I think it’s great. But. Whenever I’ve read books on it, I missed holding a real book. Turning actual pages.
Something about it feels…I don’t know. Nostalgic?
I can’t explain it.
So. I took myself out on a pretty hot date, to the library. There’s usually a sale going on, and I like finding books that I’d been wanting to read. Perusing new titles, then looking them up on my phone for online reviews, is also pretty enjoyable. But, I have to be careful I don’t too read too much. Spoilers.
I still like the idea of having a book room in our future home. But, collecting enough (good) books to line the shelves of several floor-to-ceiling bookcases seems impossible.
Do you take yourself out on dates? If so, to where?
Whether it’s to the library, thrift store, coffee shop, museum…I quite like the idea of “dating oneself”.
My afternoon ended with good coffee, and two “new” books.

I saw these for sale. It was both funny and sad.
