I love books. And no matter how many I have, I can never get enough. Only yesterday I went to a bookstore with the intention of getting one, only one, but ended up leaving with five… They are just so beautiful… The way they look, feel, smell. And there is so much knowledge out there, so many words to be read, so many intellectual paths to follow… My desire to learn is just insatiable. E-books may make reading a bit easier, but call me old fashioned, when it comes to books, I love the weight of all that knowledge in my hands. :)
So, when one of my favorite sites, Brain Pickings, featured the work of Joel Robinson on the joy of reading, I was completely taken away. What an abundance of imagination, creativity and inspiration… Whether you are a bookaholic or not, you will immediately feel mesmerized by this set of photos. Stephen King said: “Books are uniquely portable magic”. I could have said the same for Joel’s pictures. They evoke those amazing feelings you experience when you enter the magical sphere of reading .
