|Across the Universe by Beth Revis|
Now, I don't see my new obsession with these many modes of reading to be turning my back on the book. On the contrary! I get to experience MORE books than ever before! I read while driving (audiobook). I read before bed (print book). I read wherever and whenever I have down time (iPhone). It's a bibliophile's dream! (daydream?)
Now, with all my gushing about my new multimodal reading habits, I have to share my favorite recent entcounter: the crack.
Yes, the crack. It is one of my favorite sounds in the world. It's a sound that can't be imitated by anything else. (Wait, what is the sound of a black hole opening?) Yes, it's the sound of opening a new book. No matter how excited I get about my new reading experiences, this sound will always bring me back. The print book will never go away, because I know that I'm not the only one who feels this way.
