Morning Endre.

I read about a chapter a night, sometimes more but it averages to one chapter.  It takes me so long, I buy the book and give it away once I'm done.

Hello Endre - although I know you have previously written about Pages in Manhattan Beach, I have not been there.  The sign with the quote is definitely photo-worthy and I don't recall ever seeing it.

Good morning Endre. I recently found a used book store near our downtown area. One of these days I am going to take a walk and get hooked. Enjoy your day

Love, love, love that quote, Endre! I only read books... no kindle for me. Nothing like the feel of a good book in one's hands.

I agree with the sign. I like having a book in my hands, turning the pages, putting my bookmark in. I don't enjoy online reading.

I was looking for the book my friend wrote, Falling, in the picture you posted but I don't see it displayed.

I love that sign, and it makes so much sense.  I do buy hardbacks, but when we travel the kindle works for us.  Wishing you a wonderful week.  A

Howdy Endre: Thought I'd pop over today to say hello. I've been reading almost exclusively on my iPad because it is easy. Although, I do own a library card, which is probably more than most people. But there is nothing like a hard-cover book. Probably why they are so popular as gifts now.

Hello there Endre! I must admit, I converted my collection of over 250 books to Kindle.

Endre I love the sign.  It is very appropriate for a book store.

I like that sign, it has a bit of a Dr. Seuss feel to it, Endre!

Hi Endre- that quote is priceless!!!!  I love book stores and the feel of holding a book while I read it, however with all our moves we were tired of moving them. So, I read on my Kindle app. I still have some books, though.

OH my gosh, I LOVE that sign, Endre! And, you're right, the feel and smell of a bound book just takes one to a whole other place in time. I feel like turning pages lowers my blood pressure too! I can't put my finger on it...oh yes, I can!

Manhatten Beach was my favorite people watching beach.  I have been going to a small beach 300 miles north with just a few people in Monterey County.  I avoid going to more crowded place knowing Covid is still infecting people. Business barely is running. Most places will ask you to drop something in a mail slot and give you what you want by calling you to pick up stuff later when ready.
