Better than any Kindle

I am reading the best book in the world right now.... The Children of the New Forest. Its a bit of an oldy... written in 1847, and the language is nothing short of hilarious at points but it is essentially like a hug in a book. The best part of it is, the copy was a gift to my mother in 1966 and is one of the most beautiful things I've seen in such a long time.

Complete with a Saint Mass card for a book mark, I can't help but pity the other commuters with their Kindles & iPads. In my humble opinion you just can't beat a good old fashioned bound book.

I urge you keep your book dream alive and take a wonder down to your nearest second hand book shop to see what treasure you can find.
