Real Books vs E-Books

Real books need no satellites.
They’re never out of range.
Real books keep on going
With no batteries to change.

Real books are like best friends,
Waiting when you need them.
Real books are the real thing,
Just open up and read them.

We haven't gone to e-books yet at our house, Charles. The real thing is too sensory an experience to give up!

Huzzah for real books!

Love those opening two lines especially, Charles! I confess I love the idea of having hundreds of thousands of poems (for instance) available on some handheld device for travel or keeping in my purse...but I can't see anything replacing paper books for me...

Thank you! I agree! ;-)
