Well Said: Why Books STILL Rock

"Books are still very much a part of the total entertainment picture. They're portable, commercial-free, recyclable, and use no batteries."
- Stephen King as featured in Entertainment Weekly (12.06.)

  1. YES! Thank you Juju and Stephen King. It drives me nuts when I tell people that I'm a librarian and they wrinkle up their faces and say, "Do people still read books?" or even worse, "Aren't books a waste of paper? I thought everything had an e-reader!" Sheesh... Thanks for sharing :)

  14. I agree! I love the no batteries part, however if you have a Kindle, it needs to be recharged -- but they last pretty long. I really need to get Stephen King's book on writing. I started to read it a long time ago. But I got to a part about when his ear doctor used to clean out his ears with a long metal rod when he was little. I remembered that as a child and I got freaked out, I couldn't continue reading. But he said that's how he came up with a lot of scary stories. LOL
