paperback writer.

dear sir or madam, will you read my book?
it took me years to write, will you take a look?
it's based on a novel by a man named Lear
and I need a job so I want to be a paperback writer

e-books are taking over and i don't like it. i don't think i'll ever succumb to a kindle or a digital reader of any sort. there's just something special about the pages of a book, going from cover to cover. gently folding over the corner of the page. seeing how much you just read in one sitting and having that reflect how good that book really is. no glare. no fingerprints. just paper.

and after you've finished a book, you can put it on your bookshelf as a way of saying to the world, "i read this book." books say a lot about a person. i mainly read biographies by entertainers, or behind the scenes reads on pop culture (with an occasional twilight thrown in there). today i'm picking up "lies that chelsea handler told me" to add to my endless chelsea handler collection. but first, let me blog about some fun and interesting bookshleves and bookcases.
