Skyping With Your Book

Bring back the old and toss out the new. Technology seems to be taking over our homes, schools, jobs, and now our BOOKS! The constant battle between e-books and print books, 'What to do?' Our whole literary library is now sorted out in one location in the palm of our hands. But does this take away from the authenticity of the story?

Let's take a look at the RELATIONSHIP:

Before you settle on a book you do some research to make sure this is the best fit for you.

You find qualities that interest you such as genre, author, and style.

Once you are sure of your decision, you do the big MEET & GREET.

So you go to the book store and come face to face with the prospective book that you will be 'dating' the next week or so.

You are attracted to it's brief summary which is what is on the inside, but you are also very much attracted to its cover, its outer beauty.

You settle and take the relationship to the next level: YOU TAKE IT HOME.

You have long nights together of endless reading, take the train or bus together to work, and even sneak some one on one time during lunch.

But your book has to go on vacation and leaves an envelope with a pdf. file to keep in touch.

Every now and then you Skype with your book but tend to get distracted by apps, social media, and games.

Your book starts to feel lonely, and you start to drift becoming less interested.

Long distance relationships are hard to maintain.

It all boils down to personal preference. But look at your relationship from an outside perspective and see if a long distance relationship is satisfying enough for you.
