“You are basically a hashbrown!”
December 20, 2011
In honor of the first day of Hanukkah we are reading this book tonight for Advent.
I found this book at a used bookstore this past year and it has been cracking my kids up.
We have a Kindle, but I am not a convert. Sure it came in handy when my son forgot his novel at school and needed to write an essay for
his AP English class and failed to mention it until 9pm on a Sunday night. A Kindle can never replace the smell of a bookstore. Or the crack the binding makes in your hands when you open it for the first time. Or the texture of the pages and the look of the typesetting But mostly it can never replace the experience of browsing and finding unexpected treasures at a used bookstore, feeling the weight of each individual book as you turn it over in your hand. It seems like so much of the experience is lost when you read on an electronic device.
