I wonder how many people still take books home from the library to do their own personal reading. With tablets, ipads and labtops at their disposal, it’s mostly those who can’t afford to purchase these expensive technology the ones who are still  enjoying cuddling up with a good book. I do believe that many parents still keep a library of books in their homes for their kid’s intellectual well being. If you are a lover of books you can create your own home library that you and your family will appreciate for a long long time.
