First of all, I have to tell you that I really enjoyed reading all the different opinions you shared here yesterday on the lost art of letter writing. I must say that I have not really written a long letter since college. But I loved hearing all about the letters you treasure. What a beautiful thought that is!
I can remember the substantial heft of a fountain pen in my hand, and the beautiful texture of fine stationary... and I think we are all missing something when we lose that. *Sigh*
As for the books vs. Kindle debate, I must make it clear that I LOVE books. My family is a family of readers, and we have many more books than space to store them. :) And while I will never have a home without all my books, I do find myself intrigued, not so much by the Kindle, but by the ipad. You see, I'm a Mac girl through and through. :)
And I would LOVE to try out the ipad! It would never replace real books for me, but it would be a neat way to take books along when I travel and to read all the newspapers I would like. There are also some new online magazines that would be fun to read on an ipad.
So that's where I stand. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with me here.
Oh, and the little white pumpkins are my first attempt at some natural autumn decorating! Aren't they adorable? ;)
