Random Thoughts: On Books

So I noticed something the other day when I was putting Melody down for the night. She loves books. Now, this isn’t a new observation. But as she was cuddling up in her bed with both arms wrapped around a book, it occurred to me why e-books have never caught on.

Kids are just smaller, uncorrupted versions of us. They’re what we were before we were hurt, damaged and forced to go earn money. So I often watch Melody’s reactions because they are so telling. She pulled that book up to her chest and she would only let me have it if she knew I was going to read it to her.

Which, naturally, I did.

But that, my friends, is why a printed book will always be in demand.
