Print vs Digital Books?

So many people who own tablet or other wireless reading devices tell me how much they love it. And I know it does have some advantages. For example, their small size and minimal weight make eReaders easily portable and, especially if you live in a small space, a wireless reading device won't crowd you out like books can as they take up a lot less space than even a single book. But, IMHO, you lose more than you gain in most cases.

I find that there is just something about curling up with an actual book and reading it. I love to loose myself within the pages of a good book whether fiction or non. I enjoy going to the library or browsing and buying books in the local bookstore (Yes, we still have one -- but I don't know how long it will last). I love being able to have a collection of books that I can read again and again.

And I can read an old book that's been in print for over 100 years. I love the smell of a library and the feel of the pages and bindings of old books. I wonder who else held this book in their hands and read it, and if had an effect on their lives.

Maybe I'm just a romantic who is afraid of change. I'm worried that books as we know them, and those wonderful local bookstores I love, may not exist in the future. It makes me sad and somewhat fearful for the future.

If you know someone who feels as I do, consider the following as a stocking stuffer -- and maybe ensure that Santa has a book or two (or three?) in his sack for them as well.



7. For the Avid Reader Who Still Prefers Actual Books

LIGHT IT! by Fulcrum 20010-301 LED Wireless Multi Flex Clip On Task Light and Book Light, Silver
LIGHT IT! by Fulcrum 20010-301 LED Wireless Multi Flex Clip On Task Light and Book Light, Silver

Energy efficient (we've had one for almost 3 years and have not replaced the batteries yet!), bright light (and enough to light both pages of an open book), and 12 inch flexible neck. I use it when working on house repairs in dark corners too. And so much better than a flashlight if the power goes out.

 

8. For Planners, Schedulers and Jugglers

2018 Wall & Desk Calendars include Puppies, What Cats Teach Us, Life Hacks, Star Wars, Beaches,Game of Thrones, Kitchen, and Paper Airplanes
2018 Wall & Desk Calendars include Puppies, What Cats Teach Us, Life Hacks, Star Wars, Beaches,Game of Thrones, Kitchen, and Paper Airplanes

Whatever someone is interested in, there is sure to be a calender on that topic. From animals and nature to your favorite movies and shows, from hobbies to careers, serious to humorous, a calender is a year-long reminder that you care. Many calendars today are also available for downloading to a tablet or computer - and they are so much nicer and more personal than the usual scheduling software. We've chosen a few of our favorites, but there are more where these came from. Take a look and
