A simple, short and sweet story that hit home for us. Joey and I are both frequent facebookers, tweeters and of course bloggers. We are often seen with our eyeballs glued to our iPhones. I recently entered the e-reader crowd when my parents bought me a Kindle for my birthday. The Phi knows what Facebook and twitter are. She can even navigate many kid websites. This story addresses the next tech savvy generation and is a not so gentle reminder of books. You know hard bound with pages you have to actually turn and not scroll.
It was a good reminder for not just The Phi but for me as well. I love books. I love how they feel and smell. Since I was able to I have been a reader.Really I am never not in the middle of reading something. I can remember when I was a kid counting the days until Mom would take me to Nicholby's book store to get the latest edition of Sweet Valley Twins. I am hoping that our weekly library trips and our daily bed time stories will give The Phi and Lou the same love for book. Actual-physical-hold in your hands kind of books.
