For The Love Of Paper: An Ode To Print Books

There has been a constant debate in the bookish community and it is time I throw my hat in. THROW! (Did you hear the fedora wooshing through the air?) Anyway, as you may have guessed by the title of this post, I prefer a tangible, paper product in my hand. Don’t get me wrong, e-books are okay too (whatever gets the written word out there) but there is nothing like having a book in your hands, it reading you as you read it. (That may sound creepy but I promise it isn’t, haha.)

The Benefits of Print Over Electronic:

  1. The Smell.

  2. The smell of old books, slightly musty and warm. The smell of new books, like ink and hope.
