  1. karenhermann

    To me, nothing feels better than a book in the hands. The smell of the cover and the pages is a pleasure lost to e-readers. The same can be said of digital music and photos. In the future we’ll be passing down hard drives instead of photo albums, books and albums. And when technology changes as it always does, they may not even be accessible, a part of their history gone forever.

      P. S. I love that painting. ❤️

      • Seen at a flea market…when I saw it I thought, yes, she emerges from her cave, lies down, bares a breast and loses herself in her book. Interesting scenario…

        Isn’t that how we all read a book? 😉

      • Well, I suppose there is something to that. I think though that it works better for her than it would for me…😁

        Maybe you’re going to the wrong book clubs. 😄

      • Yes, of course, that must be it…
