An excellent image to re enter in the monthly theme, Sister Swanee! The way things are going at the moment books look like becoming obsolete in a few years!

Laura E. Swan level-classic 9/10/2012 2:49:58 PM

Brother, you are so right. It's so sad. I love books and have hundreds of them. Not being read either. Here I sit and I search Google when I need something...Sad state of affairs...I will miss books, and will hold on to mine until they are pried from my arms...even if I am not reading them. Lol...

Thanks for the visit. I owe you one. :)

Hi Neal! Thank you! :)


Hi Wm! Yippeeeeeeeee!BOOKS LIVE! That is the best news I have heard all day! :))))

THINK OF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THIS WORLD LOST ELECTRICITY!!! (And the "pas-say" idea of books had been destroyed?!)

We'd be a lost world! The new generations would be born uneducated and stay that way!!! WOW! SPOOKY THOUGHT!!! Back to scribbling on cave walls! That fast!

Happy to see you visiting!

Excellent choice for a re-submit in this month's MT category, Pom! This is the first time I've seen the image, and it's definitely Gold Winner material! #10317906

Laura E. Swan level-classic 9/11/2012 8:47:35 PM

Hi Mare! Gosh, your encouragement is always a wonderful shot in the arm for me. :) (Isn't that a weird saying??? Sounds like a 'junkie' term but my parents age group used to say it!! HeeHee!)

There are so many treasures at Heritage Park here in Calgary, and their books are only part of it. I need to go there again and load up on gems.

Thanks for being such a wonderful supporter of my work.

-Pomagrateful :D
