Wonderful image & papers used. My daughter loves to read. She is a sr. in college. She can read & comprehend a Harry Potter size book in 1 day. Each yr of college she took another boxful of pleasure reading books back to college. Last yr for Christmas she wanted the Barnes & Noble Complete Works of Shakespere book with the nice gold gilded pages. She is not a Nook or Tablet or such reader. She likes to turn the pages of an actual book. Thank you for entering OSAAT Ch#168 Use a Digi.
