Well, son of a gun. I didn't realize April was National Poetry Month. As you know, I still do my haiku, but find myself these days also reading more and more poetry! Something's in the air. I really like this little boy absorbed in his book. I agree Kindles aren't the same. For me though, they're more practical than hauling back books, but if I like a book on Kindle, I buy it in paper form....
We're on the same wavelength Kate :) you'll see tomorrow, books are the best!
Oh, these speak to me. Having been a children's librarian for so long, it always makes me happy to see a child with a book. It's such a rare sight any more that it's a good thing we have these marvelous statues to commemorate the memory.
I read both ways, electronically and with real books. But I still prefer the old-fashioned way most of the time.
those are really neat!
I agree. In fact I may write a poem. And I am reading a book; actually several books.If you don't read in AprilOr even in the fallIf you don't read in winterWhat's the purpose of it all?Reading is precisionIt helps you find your waySo make a good decisionRead something every day.
I agree. I have a couple of friends who read from Kindles but, I can't take to it. I love the feel and smell of a book.
I, too have a kindle and although it is convenient when I travel, I find I can't remember the titles of the books I am reading nor can I flick back through the pages easily to remind myself where I am in the plot. I love the feel of a real book, the turn of the page and constantly looking at the title does help me remember what I am reading!
I love my books. Haven't gone the kindle way...
I do believe in magic!ROG, ABCW
What a loveky sculptures, se sweet.
They're splendid sculptures! So lifelike.
Two excellent "portraits" of these very appealing child statues.
What sweet little statues! I didn't know it was Poetry month!Leslieabcw team
With you on Kindle not being the same. I read electronically but only when there's no other choice. I'm keeping my traditional books. Love the statues!
these are sweet sculptures...and i agree, a kindle just isn't the same. i have had a nook for a few years and have yet to finish a book on it!
Yes we do enter a magical world when we read a book!!!Ann
