Over on Book Group Buzz, Neil Hollands took a break from writing about book clubs to talk about how books and audio books got him through a rough few days cleaning up from Hurricane Irene. Click here to read the essay which ends with this great line:
So here’s to my old friend the book, which requires only a candle or tiny flashlight on even the darkest of nights.I support ebooks whole heartedly, but Neil is right, there is no technology that can compete with a book. The printed book is the perfect delivery device for reading: you don't need a power source and you can take it with you everywhere.
So as you start your holiday weekend and say goodbye to summer, grab a book to take with you. Don't know what to book to choose. Good thing you are here at RA for All. Look around and see what I have been suggesting. You can start with the tags, reading lists, book discussion books, or what I'm reading or click through to The Browsers' Corner or my Shelfari for suggestions.
