Off The Shelf
So when's the last time you walked into a bookstore? With everything available online these days, we're slowly losing touch with some of the little things that once gave us pleasure. Turning the pages on a Kindle isn't quite the same as cracking a spine and getting that 'new book' smell waft through one's head. You need to touch the pages and feel them to really connect with the author. Walking through the aisles of a bookstore is far more exciting than browsing the new arrivals at amazon.com. Sure flipkart delivers books to your door, but wouldn't you rather go out and get a book than wait patiently for the mailman to drop by? This whole technology thing is ridding us of the simple life. Well, got to go now. I have to water my plants and tend to my garden on Farmville.
