Kate asks us to share what books mean to us this round. What a GREAT question!!!

I could go on and on and on and on, but I’ll spare you. Instead, I’ll share a list of attributes I believe books have.

They have:

  • Pages
  • Words

Just kidding folks! (bad joke, huh?)

Okay, this is for real this time. (I pwommiss.)

Books are:

  • Wonderful entertainment
  • A way of escaping
  • An opportunity to experience something outside of your own life
  • A method of education and imparting knowledge
  • Super fun to write
  • Super HARD to write
  • Absolutely, postively, 100% awesome to shop for
  • A great addition to any bookshelf…or table…or bedstand…or floor…or bare inch of empty space
  • A fantastic gift!
  • A patient companion (really, who else would spend months turned over, pages bent, on the bedstand until you find even a spare moment to pick up?)
  • A coping mechanism
  • Always there for you
  • A treasure.

Tell me, friends, what do books mean to you?

Be sure to check out Michelle M’s post tomorrow and if you missed yesterday’s post by Sarah, here’s the link.

Happy reading!

    I agree with a lot of your list. I really love books for the escaping aspect. To dive into another world is just what I look for in a book–heck, in a movie, too!

    Great post!

  2. Great list. I agree with all your points, especially the last one. Books are a treasure!

    I’m back online! I thought I would die without internet. LOL.
    Oh, this is a great list, Laura. I agree with everything. Ditto!!
    Hope you enjoyed your holidays.

  4. You called it – a means of escape and a new way to view the world.

  5. I have to agree with everything you listed–with one exception. Now that I have a Kindle, books don’t have to have pages.

  6. My favorite place to shop is a bookstore. I am not a shopper. I hate to shop. Show me a bookstore; I’m a happy shopper! Blessings to you…
