Mary's Books

I have loved to read since I was little. I would borrow many books from the library and still borrow to this day, but I also purchase books (mostly for my kids) and freebies on Kindle. I read as much as I can daily. Sometimes I read several books at one time. I don't have a preference of paper book over an ebook, I just love to read. Keeping lists of what I have read is a good way for me to remember.

Books Dead?
Books Dead?

Recently, I took my girls to Halloween Haunt and they have the "graveyard" of old rides. This is kind of fun for those of us old enough to remember the rides in question and in some cases why they were removed and never used again....Son of Beast - the wood became rotten and broke apart when it was being run. Many were injured and some were seriously injured. There was no fixing the ride and it was taken down and replaced with other rides. 

 

I remember when they put up the gravestone to books. It was about the time the Nook and Kindle were gaining in popularity. I think they need to remove this one since books have not lost their popularity and people are still reading. Yeah, there are those who prefer one type over another, but the book is not dead. 

 

Happy Halloween.
