Some even take you forward and back in time.
A portable form of the Tardis, I state
Books are bigger on the inside in their prime
When the tale makes you leave this world for a while
Or cheers you up - making you laugh or just smile.
Books cover all known worlds and plenty of unknown ones too. Their covers can be beautiful, colour printing for pictures amazing especially for nature and wildlife books. I’m not against the Kindle or other devices but there should be room for “proper” books as well. There is a romantic element to a decent quality hardbook or imaginatively titled paperback you don’t get with electronic readers. Libraries should be seen as sources of knowledge given e-books aren’t designed to be permanent (which I don’t understand. Why shouldn’t they be everlasting?). Books are a sign of culture. E-readers simply aren’t the same.
