Going old school baby

I love technology. I love my computer, the Internet, and email.   I love my tiny iPod touch that is still somewhat of a marvel to me.  That I can check and respond to email through this small and thin device, amazes me.


I have to say, that despite my unflinching and shameless love of technology, I am still "old school" in this one way...




I should get a new one, probably splurge on a hardcover. Maybe Santa will bring me one.

 This is my constant companion as I write. It doesn't matter if it's an email, or a short blog post about a clipboard.

  I am well aware of the dictionary and thesaurus sites online. I even use my spell check!  There is just something about picking up this book, and finding the word in these worn out pages. 

 Anyone else have one of these?

  1. While I too love technology ( can't imagine functioning w/out my nav system in my car!) and do rely on sites like dictionary.com, I am old school when it comes to books. I know there are Kindles, and i-Pads, and Nooks, but there nothing will EVER take the place for me of curling up with a book. I love the texture of the paper ( surprise) the smell, and the act of turning pages.

  2. I don't know about a dictionary. I'm not sure I even have one in my house. When my girls need to know what something means, it is so easy to just "google" it.

    Following you now.

  6. There is no technology that can give you the feel of paper, the smell of ink or the smudges of time like a book can. And yes, I still have my huge Webster's dictionary that I bought for my freshman year of college....20 years ago!

    Have a great weekend!

    Hi Christine,
    While I don't even own a dictionary any more, I can totally relate to low technology! Gotta love a good book (an ACTUAL book, that is, not an electronic one!).

  9. Oh my goodness, yes! Mine doesn't look like yours, but it is a hardcover torn and worn old thing that I got for highschool graduation.

    I love it,and I feel exactly the same way you do about having it right at hand.
