eBooks’ Character Flaws

papery wonder;
that little pop
when i
stretch the binding
for the first time ~
and i smell them…
letters… ink ~
the doorway
lies straight ahead.
one last look
at the artistic teaser…
and i dive
dive deep;
let imagination
entice me.

my friends,
your virtual cousins
will never inherit
your charms.

I love books. For the one my extremely kind mailman delivered to me today, I have waited for more than a year… and now I am sitting here, building my anticipation, just looking at it. Sweet agony.
This is the beauty I am looking at: Jim Butcher’s ” Cold Days”
… if you don’t know the Series and love to read, boy, you’re in for a treat. They are absolutely marvelous. Who knows, maybe one of you will get hooked as well.
Now… off to enjoy the moment I’ve waited for… for so long.
