I have to say, I'm all about technology.
I'm on Facebook, as any of my friends will tell you (oh, boy, am I ever) and I LOVE iPads and iPhones and iPods. (I had an old "Shuffle" but it broke. I want an iPad so badly it nearly hurts).
But I was killing some time this week and went into one of the remaining dinosaurs of our world, anymore.
I went into a private, small, local and locally-owned bookstore.
To be specific, I went into Rainy Day Books in Fairway. (It's not far from my daughter's house).
Just wandering the aisles, looking at all the different books, the sizes, the colors, the textures, the stories, everything, it occurred to me that this is what a computer or e-book "reader" doesn't give or deliver.
Sure, you can still hold your Kindle or whatever but the book? And the bookstore?
This is where I remain a luddite. Or druid, or something.
Give me that "old time religion" of the book, with all its texture and maybe even clumsiness.
But it's richness and depth, too.
