Books Made Of Paper

A paper book is a wondrous thing

No batteries are needed

You can shelve it for a hundred years

Then take it down and read it.

 

You can read it in the bath tub

You can read it on the train

You can read it when the sun is bright

You can read it in the rain.

 

It needs no wires or charging

No cables and no socket

It’s soft and flexible enough

To stuff it in your pocket!

 

You can scribble in the margins

From the first page to the end.

You can write a message in the front

And give it to a friend.

 

So cast away your Kindle

For technology moves on

While the software gets corrupted

The paper book lives on.
