If you are anything like me, I practically eat books. Once I pick one up, and I like it, I can’t put it down. Actually, that concepts pertains to any piece of reading material – all sorts of newspapers, magazines, fliers, online articles, online subscriptions, ebooks, and of course, my favorite, the good old hardcover or paperback book.
There’s just something special about sitting down (well, cuddling up on the couch with a blanket and my puppy) and enjoying a great book. And I love it when you are lucky enough to have such a great book that you just can’t put the book down. It’s all about the suspense…what’s on the next page, and the next page, and the next. I just can’t put the book down.
But think about sustainability when considering paper books — libraries are the best option when you prefer paper books. They are FREE, and will be reused time and time again. But if you prefer to purchase your books, consider used, and one you have read the book, pass it on — to a friend, a co worker, someone. Or donate it to a library, a charity, or a church.
