I wish I had found this quote as I was writing last post.
…Books look good too: their clean black-on-white print, their enchanting cover art, their thin spines that peek out like sentries from the shelves. Books even sound good. They’re quiet, still, and bother no one, which, in our modern era of sonic madness and electronic rabble, provides an elegant respite from so much annoying media. -Dave Bindini
Please check out A Working Library. It’s the most peaceful blog in the universe while retaining an engaging atmosphere.
I believe that books will always remain the one technology that calms the brain while engaging it.
