Paperback

In this world of kindle and e-books, am I the only one who is still stuck on conventional form of reading. Like Novels made from real paper, Paperback or Hardcover?

For me reading a book isn’t just about ‘reading’ it. It’s about turning pages when you complete one. It’s about attaching bookmarks to them. It’s about personalizing them with your highlights, underlines and marks. It’s about smelling those pages again and again and getting an orgasm every time. It’s about buying it from the shop and feeling “Oh! Now you belong with me.” To buy a book is to buy a whole universe associated with it. Each book will have it’s own place in your heart as well as in your shelf. They can make you nostalgic yet euphoric. I am so in love with this form of paper.

And most likely I’m gonna be in love with it forever.
