May I just say that I love books? I really do. I love the way they smell, the way they feel, the way they take you places you never imagined you could go....
I love how a book stays where it is until you're ready for it. I love that you could leave a book alone for hours, days, weeks, months or even years, and it will still be there for you. Always.
I love that you can borrow a friend's book and no one thinks anything of it. I love that you can have as many books as you want and no one thinks poorly of you for it. In fact, they tend to think highly of you.
You can discuss books in graphic detail, and no one will call you crass or vulgar.
I love that you can take a book everywhere with you - shopping, on the bus or train, anywhere you are, and never feel like they just don't want to be there, or that they are annoying you, or ignoring you.
I love that books are there when you need them, the moment you need them.
I love books.
