The Love of Physical Books


We love this article written by Kate Harris of The Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation and CultureShe puts into words what many of us haven't been able to when describing our love of books, and not just the stories but what they each represent. Through this she shares her reasons for not replacing the books in her home with a Kindle.

"We have countless opportunities to save time, save money, save paper, save energy, but in the midst of all the saving, what I want most is to be sure I have a few simple things to hold on to — tangibly — to remind me what is real and true and humble. Like a few good books."

Harris describes her books as autobiographical, revealing different phases of life, interests she has had over the years and some of them bringing back memories of the vacation she was on when she read a particular book.
