Even though Amazon sells books for pretty darn cheap and offers free delivery, I'd still rather buy used books; the total price for used books including shipping totals up to more than buying it straight from Amazon. I adore poring through slightly yellowed paper knowing that somewhere someone else has shared the same emotions that I am about to experience while reading the same novel. I think it binds humanity in an odd sort of way.

I am saddened at how these days tapping away at the computer aimlessly has overridden my interest in reading paperbacks. I am a sad, sad by-product of the 21st century.


One day, when I grow old, I want that exact library that the Beast gave Belle. 
Complete with the swirly staircase and the mile high ladders.

    High five...I've always wanted that library too! That library is epic! The sheer thought of wandering through all those books makes me drool.
