Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question is from Becca

Do you prefer Nook, Kindle, other reader, or paper book???

My answer....
For anyone who has followed the blog for some time will already know my passion for the real printed book.  There is nothing better than holding your favourite book in your hands, the touch, the feel, the smell.  Sat curled up in front of the fire on a cold winters day with a great book is pure bliss.  Never used a Nook, Kindle or any other e-reader.

I've even made a Facebook group called 'Keep Real Books Alive' and a little poem I wrote on the side of my blog xx

My Book Vow

I will continue to treasure my books every day

To admire them all on display

There gilted titling on colourful covers and spines

There beautiful designs that seem to come to life

To cherish my most precious book

To hold it in my hands and connect to the story and characters

Escaping into another world as

You gently turn each page

Feeling the books own unique history

The smell of the old pages and print

Books are our history, present and our future

Without them the world would be a very sad place indeed

by Sharon Martin

  1. That's a beautiful poem! I definitely love printed books because they are beautiful. But I actually think that using an ereader keeps printed books special! I still get excited over buying amazing hardbacks. I also travel too much to be able to carry all of my books around! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. The e-book is perfect for travelling or being on the go but I don't see myself getting away from printed books anytime soon. I agree that the world would be a sad place without them!

  3. I am going to find your Facebook page. I LOVE print books.

    E-books are ok. I actually tend to forget about books on my iPad. I need physical presence. :)

    Happy Hopping!!

  4. Nice poem :) It beautifully sums up how I feel about owning real books! (Although I can understand the appeal of e-books)

  5. I like that poem! I like ebooks, but will never completely give up my paperbacks and hardcovers.
