The arrival of new paperbacks, hot from the oven, always calls for a celebration. The combination of the velvety feel of the cover, the smell of freshly dried ink and the rustle of crisp pages is enough to drive me ecstatic. Digital books don’t have the same effect, and never will. There is magic in paperback.
As soon as I open the box and hold them in my arms, feeling their weight, I am filled with a sense of accomplishment. They have arrived. They are real. I created them.
Now, I shall sit down with a nice cup of lemon tea and start reading.
In case you wanted to join me, both the paperbacks and ebooks are available to order: http://mybook.to/TheEndoftheRoad
