kiwisa from North Shore, New Zealand

Enjoy it - the time will come when we don't have access to books anymore- it will all be digital.

26 Sep 2011 7:08pm

@kiwisa: In two thousand years ago, when archaeologists dig up our civilization ... they will find nothing. Only a lot of silver disks. And they will think that this disks are be only a part of the many many trash, what they find all over in the earthlayer of our age. Perhaps they think that this disks are be saucers for coffeecups. They find a world without pictures, without scripts, with nothing in our graves... only rubbish. They will find more artefacts of the egypt- and roman culture, than from this time today.

Loukas from Ilioupolis, Greece

And plenty of options!

marci from in, Morocco

I'd like to browse to see what you have!

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

close-up of the titles next?

26 Sep 2011 7:35pm

@Ted: and marci: A lot of historical- and philosophic literature, even about politics. Many encyclopedias, atlases, travelguides and biographies, even many novells, books about motorcycles, dogs, sailing and photographic. Some comics and cartoons and art picture books...and cooking books of different cultures. And some about erotic, esoteric and religions.

Melocoton from Salamanca, Spain

very nice

26 Sep 2011 7:38pm

Tamara from Aarschot, Belgium

Excellent tones... A lot of reading pleasure for the winter evenings ! I like your boats, they're very beautiful ! Have a wonderful evening :)

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

In addition to doing lots of reading, I'm a great believer in actual books. Not digital books (tho they do have their place). There is nothing like holding a book in your hands, reading and turning the pages. Smells good, feels good, looks good in the bookcase. Yours sure do.

26 Sep 2011 8:32pm

@Viewfinder: Yes...I agree with you. And I like also my good old vinyl music equipment. This is stuff with soul!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Slowly but surely TV is going by the wayside. And I will say that I will never let a Kindle take over a great book to pick up and read.

26 Sep 2011 8:35pm

@Steven: TV is not ever bad. Channels like the Discovery are well. But the mainprogramm is only a stupiciding program, so that people forget the independent thinking; for desinformation, that the people loses there interesting for politics, business and culture; just for the real truth. And to launch a commercial bombardment.

Gary from Cochise County, United States

I bet you have some pretty interesting reading there. The world needs to get back to picking up more books.

26 Sep 2011 8:55pm

@Gary: Well, but the truth is even not always printed in books. Publishers are also capitalists and often also involved in the television. An example is Rupert Murdoch. In Italy the people is reading a lot of books to get truly informations, because in al TV-channels, newspapers and magazines is Bunga-Bunga-Berlusconi involved. Now he makes pressure on independent book publishers.

Landy from Miami, United States
