    Does Marigold know those scrolls are made from animal hides?

    I was going to mention stone tablets, but I like Monster Hesh reply better.

    I prefer both ways. I like reading from a book…same reasons as Phoebee’s mom but I like the idea of a digital book. Which one I use depends

    I’m with the Mom on this one. Technology is all well and good, but it can’t quite replace physical books just yet.

    When Kindle and Nook smell like a Bindery, the scents of ancient paper, leather and glue, then I will say they are as good as physical books.#HardCopy

    E-readers are fine for saving space, but you can’t beat a real book.

    I prefer both electronic and hard copy. It depends on use, and what my preferences are at the time. Having two versions of The Bible, a six volume Bible commentary, my science fiction and music all on my Kindle Fire is just plain convenient when I go somewhere which will cause me to wait a long time.

    To Dana (and all y’all, too!): Very nice observation. I’m always looking for my favorite old books in hardcover format on Amazon. One of the first things I do when I get one is stick my nose deep in the middle pages and breathe deep. Reminds me of the smell of my grandfather’s books (including his leather-bound law books) when the bookcase doors were opened, and the first library I ever walked into nearly sixty years ago. Oh, the aroma…! THAT being said, I can only imagine what Marigold’s scrolls offer her when she unrolls ‘em, and what we’re missing. Thank you, Dana, for a nod to real books.

    I prefer “real” books myself, but either way they look like they are having a pleasant afternoon together!

    I stand behind my statement.My bookcases, with all the books and clutter looks better than most “decor” that I’ve ever seen.

    It really doesn’t matter how you read, just enjoy reading.

    I liked books. Unfortunately, you can’t make the print bigger, and not everything comes in large print.

    Books: you don’t have to plug them in, they won’t crash on you, there’s no fear of CRT-type radiation or equivalent, you can go back and forth with them and skip around all you want. And you STILL don’t have to plug them in or use ANY electricity, reading lamps notwithstanding. And you get stimulated to use your imagination, to make pictures in your mind. Three cheers for books and the printed word!

    I too prefer paper books,sure they might take up more space but no worrying about the battery dieing, of course the fact that due to my work at a library I have a free subscription also helps

    Wood grain (including paper and wood pencils) causes very unpleasant chills in my spine. THAT’S why I don’t read physical books anymore, despite having so many books in my closet that I want to read.
