Books as Portable Magic

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Books have only become more portable with the advent of the digital age, with one slender device holding a library. I’ll confess to being old-fashioned enough to resent that. I still think of books in terms of paper. I don’t think I’m alone in this. When given a choice, many of the people who read my books for review want a paperback copy.

While digital books have their place, the simplicity of thumbing through the pages of a paperback puts me in touch with the story in a way no other format can match. Do you share my feeling or are you a digital book fan?

Final Thoughts from Janalyn

Author Janalyn VoigtWhatever format you prefer to read in, a good story will make either a print book or a digital reading device disappear.

I love that, don’t you?
