I Love the Feel of Papyrus

You might be an “old-school” reader if...

 

  • The only “e”-book you've read is the fifth volume of the encyclopedia.

  • You think Kindle is something you burn in the fireplace.

  • Being a prolific writer means writing TWO books a year (see Patterson, James).

  • You believe non-fiction books and memoirs actually have to be true.

  • You remember a time when dogs didn’t narrate best-sellers.

...You think of a library as a building where you can read and borrow books, not something you click.

... You remember clearly when Amazon referred to a river.

--Publishers had a promotional buget...and shared it with their authors.

...You worry about paper cuts not carpal tunnel when you're reading

...You love the smell of a library book in the morning.

You guys rock! I'm definitely calling on you when I start to put together my stand-up routine.

...You remember when libraries actually had more bookshelves with books than computer desks and cafes.

Makes me pine for the old days! Saw a fella in the library a few days ago and he asked a librarian where the card catalog was. Oh my goodness. He had no idea...
