Bookish Wonders #Extra – Why I Will Always Love Books.

With all things literary moving digital it seems the future will move away from books. But I can’t help but love the printed page and the little messages left behind by previous readers. It seems to tell a history that will never be gained by a eBook.

Library books in particular are some of my favourite reads with post-stick notes, pencil scribbles and full on highlighting of pages really enhancing my reading experience.

Here is a book I got out of my university library this week that I really loved.

Black book on bottom right – Mythologies by Roland Barthes (2000)
Little pencil notes of a library book reference, a meeting & a website URL.
Post stick notes found inside the front cover including a shopping list!

There are some book that I will always purchase where I can namely the Charlaine Harris ‘True Blood’ series and Kelley Armstrong’s ‘Women of the Otherworld’ series – and undoubtedly new. I still hold dear to my heart the printed book.

And I will always be a library dweller reading the notes left by others before anything else.

Despite the above I will not miss carting heavy text books, or running out of reading material whilst on holiday. I may be slow in embracing the digital trend, and will never fully abandon my books I still look forward to the future of reading!
