"Books are still very much a part of the total entertainment picture. They're portable, commercial-free, recyclable, and use no batteries."
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 :)
Yeah,I agree with that. Even if I have a eReader, it will never beat a book!
Two thumbs up! Great quote...even better if you get your books out of the library it's FREE entertainment!
He said it :D

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
I've had an ereader for a couple months now but I still perfer reading an actual book and having one in my hands.
Totally shocked to find myself agreeing so heartily with Stephen King on anything.
I don't think there has been a truer statement made.
Cleverly & Misty: :)NotNessie & GMR: LOL :)Jenny N.: I love my eReader but you're right, nothing beats the feel of a real book :)Julie: LOL True :) OMG That would have freaked me out too :)1stdaughter: Amen!

Nice quote! There's nothing like a real paper book. Especially when your e-reader needs charging. :P
La Cocc: Amen! What a good point! :)

Cherry: I feel ya darling! Books are the best escape there is!
