Book It!

Disclaimer-  This is not my typical foodie blog post.  lol

I’ve just been talking to some Twitter friends about books.  Yup, books.  I was a book-worm.  I was reading the New York Times when I was 6 years old.  My father used to stand me up in front of guests and make me read to them!

I was the kid always in the art department, or in the band room, or rehearsing for the next play.  When I wasn’t doing that, I was reading, book after book.  That’s what gave me wanderlust.  And, that’s what led to my travels.

Its so hard to imagine little kids not being read to from a book, but from a hard, plastic “pad.”  Or hiding under the covers at night with a flashlight so you can read just a little bit more…..  from a book.  There’s something to the feel of a book, the smell of a book.

I love book stores, art supply stores, knitting stores, food stores, kitchen supply stores, and I expect they’ll always be around…..  won’t they?

Book stores have GOT to stay around.  There’s just SOMETHING about books.

What do you think?
