Brooklyn Hudson – A World Without Books
By Brooklyn Hudson
A world without books … will probably (hopefully) never be. There will always be lovers of hard copy books just as we will always have art lovers. I own an iPad, iPhone, Kindle, you name it; but nothing takes the place of the smell and feel of a book in your hands – especially a used, worn book.
Nowadays I download books to my e-readers but the books I fall in love with I then buy in print form to keep on my shelf. I think schools need to push reading more, like they did when I was a kid. I ask children I meet about reading and sadly, some of them tell me their teachers don’t encourage a love of reading…that scares me a little.
