I love books. I donít love them like I love my wife and children. Or strawberries. But I do love books. I like almost everything about them. I like the way they feel in your hands and the way you can take them almost anywhere, in a backpack or a suitcase or a coat pocket. I like the fact that a book is a real thing with texture and weight, like a rock or a piece of wood.
