It’s that time of year. Summer reading time that is. Local libraries are gearing up for their summer reading programs for kids. I still recall those hazy, lazy days of June, July and August when I would lose myself completely in some fantastical, wondrous tale.
I own a Kindle Oasis and I love it for the convenience of being able to carry dozens (in truth, hundreds) of books around with me, but I also still own shelves of paperbound books. I’ve loved books since I was a child and that’s a love I know will never go away.
Carl Sagan was also my guide on an astonishing trip through the Cosmos. That mantle has now been taken up by Neil DeGrasse Tyson. And the cosmos is still just as amazing and mind-blowing. As are books.
