Books have always been an important part of my life and my family's when I was growing up, and they are now with my own family. There are always piles of books on all our bedside tables, and on shelves throughout the house.
We don't buy very many new books, we all enjoy fossicking through secondhand bookstores, and weekly trips to the library are essential. There is something exciting about collecting a long awaited reserved book or discovering a new author or series.
With all the technological advances in e-books and kindles, I can only hope that the pleasure of sitting in a comfy spot, getting lost in the pages of an enjoyable book will not be a thing of the past.
