Ad of the Day: Anagram Bookshop
Last week Amazon announced that ebook sales have surpassed the sales of real paper books. It saddens me, tears a piece of my heart away. I grew up in a bookshop, grew up surrounded by the scratching sound of pages turning and the smell of new paper. Thus, on this Memorial day, we honor of the pages that still get turned, the words read from paper written in ink and not pixels.
And to this end, here’s Anagram Bookshop’s imaginative campaign. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
It will be a sad day in history when books are no longer printed, when people no longer enjoy the scent of paper and the weight of a volume in hand.
