Despite our new technologies, there’s just something about a book, with its striking cover and pages you can turn forward. And pages you can turn back, of course, if you wish to look at something again. Or pages you can pause at and ponder; perhaps a line takes your breath away, or a simple phrase. That’s the thing about a book: you decide the pace. You can hold it, bath with it and lovingly write your name in it – in fact, it’s a bit like a marriage. If you like truth you can touch, this is the place.
