I came back from a trip a few days ago. While at the airport, I glanced around and saw a few people reading on their Kindles. I had a book. Once on the plane, coming and going, someone next to me had a Kindle as well. But the person next to him had a book as did I. We kind of smiled at each other.

Will I ever get to the point where I might buy a Kindle? I don’t know. Right now, I still like to feel the book in my hands. I like to turn the pages. I like to put my inspirational bookmark where I leave off. I like to carry the book in my tote bag. Puts a smile on my face knowing I’ll have some free time on the plane to take it out and read it. Maybe someday … a Kindle. But for right now, I’m sticking with my books.

  1. I understand how you feel and I wonder if young people growing up with e-readers will feel the same way about them.

  2. I wonder too. I love books and I don't think I'll ever get tired of them.
