What is a Book????

Written by Joy Dembo. Posted in Archive

My daughter works part time in a book store and she invited me to a book launch last Sunday night.
 
I was a real bookworm as a child, teen and young adult, but I am afraid that I am now a hopeless Internet Junkie and no longer have the time or the inclination to read. So, my immediate reaction to my daughter’s invitation was “What the heck is a book???” LOL! But, not wanting to be ungracious and knowing that she really wanted me there for moral support, I reluctantly agreed.
 
My daughter was taking cash and assisting customers with queries and I wandered aimlessly along the aisles, looking at shelves and shelves of BOOKS! Novels, non-fiction works, self-help books, biographies, business books, science fiction books, religious books, recipe books, children’s books…best sellers, sale books, classics, well-known and obscure authors… you name it! And, I felt deeply saddened that I no longer read.
 
The www, in all its wonderful and magical glory, has added much to my life, but in that moment, I realised that it has also changed me, and perhaps taken something away from me, and I made a firm decision to change that!
 
The first step? I bought 2 books!!!
 
I haven’t started reading yet, but I do intend to (if I can ever get away from this keyboard!!)
 
Do other Internet Junkies read? And, if so, when do u find the time to “feed” your addiction, work, run a home AND read????
