I never thought I’d say this but I love my Kindle. Why? Because I can order a book and have it right away. The price is right and there’s no shipping charge. So, because I’m an avid reader, I buy a lot of the books I read that way. I also go to the library to get books by my favorite BIG NAME authors. (Libraries don’t usually have books by small press authors unless the author is local.)
But there’s something else I do that I think is the most important. From time to time, I make sure to purchase a paper book. Why? Because if we don’t buy “real” books, we’re in danger of losing them. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to live in a world without books on my shelves that I can lovingly hold in my hands. And I don't want future generations to live without ever knowing the joy of real books.
So, I’m declaring this "Buy a Real Book" week. I hope that, after you read this post, you’ll go to (I've made this really easy for you) http://www.amazon.com/books-used-books-textbooks/b?ie=UTF8&node=283155, find a book in your favorite genre and order it. You can consider that your good deed for the day!
