Description

I love books. I love bookshops. My bank does not! I love the smell though, the newness. The things that the Kindle can't give and which I'm constantly forgoing in the favour of ease and reading in bed with the little flat thingy-bob that turns pages so much easier. What are we throwing away by resorting to such technology? The swish of a page, the smell of fresh paper, the crackle of a spine as a hardback is opened for the first time - the hours of browsing, breathing in the smell, leafing through heavy tomes and light poetry excerpts. We're throwing that away in favour of backlit screens, browsing on amazon and downloading via 1 click. It's a shame really, when you think about it.

Dimbola Lodge: Isle of Wight - the smallest book shop ever. If you sneezed, i swear the shelves would collapse!
