Written Words The Beginnings
before books we were writing on cave walls, clay...
In Ancient times, they drew on walls, tablets of clay, picture depicting the story, Did that make the words less engaging or interesting? Then there came manuscripts, and finally paper, does it really matter what or how we read the written words.
There is no disputing that the eReader continues to be one of the hottest selling items on the market. Why? Is it a novelty item, should we all move into the 21st century and embrace it, or should we dig our heels in as sometimes things are just worth fighting for.
But It has been suggested that reading a paper book is faster than reading an eReader...that surprised even me, some of the perks are you can pick up a book, drop it on the floor and pick it up whre you left off

I love nothing better than visiting the library, that unmistakable musty smell, that hits you when you open the door, it reminds me of when I was young, my mum reading to me in the quiet corner.
I have a vast collection of books, some I have read more than twice, the pages being folded over at the corner, the coffee marks, from being so engrosed in the book you actually miss your mouth with the cup. I still own some books given to me as presents, even dating back to when I was a small child.
The feel, texutre and smell of the paper itself. Wrapping up in a huge fleece blanket, snuggling into your favourite chair...lost in the words leaping from the paper
Now even this simple pleasure has been overtaken by the computer age! With the introduction of ebook readers. A question I ask is how long will it take for the ereader to replace books?

The publishing of books, newspapers are statistically renowned for being a huge factor in the environmental world, not only to our trees, but also our water resources too.
We know that in order to make our books, we chop down vast amounts of trees, however a book can last as long as you want it to. It can be re-cycled as many times as you want it to be. I take some of my books to the local charity shop where I hand them over and buy some new books to bring home.
