Are Home Libraries A Thing Of The Past?

When I was growing up, my parents had a living room that had one wall entirely shelved with books – wall to wall and ceiling to floor. I am not a book reader because somehow I always wind up face down and fast asleep just five pages in. However, give me my iPad or magazine and I can read for days.

Anyway, back to the books. I always love to looks at the books, smells them and just admire how impressive they looked in a room. I was wondering, are the library room days over? Do newer homes still have impressive libraries or have they become a thing of the past?

    I hope not! But we are presently purging as many books as possible. There are some that I can’t part with. I am a writer and hard copy is just so wonderful.I get stiff and glaze over at a computer screen for too long. Also, making notes in a book is a nice commodity. Books that are specialized to one’s field (e.g. “Writer’s Market”) just won’t do on a digital device. I want book shelves in a room, but perhaps an entire library isn’t necessary.

      I just wonder about the young kids today, toddlers, are they reading books or electronic books?

        My babies (twins age 6) read hard copy–almost always! I think books in hard copy lend themselves to reading and being cozy, even if they’re on the shelves and one sits and reads on an ipad in a nearby chair. A reading/work/study room is my dream!
