This week’s The Gallery prompt is Home Comforts on the lovely Tara’s Sticky Fingers Blog.
I never thought about this before I tried to find what I would show for today’s The Gallery post, but I don’t have any home comforts, like a favourite chair, cushion, slippers, glass, mug, anything like that. I don’t have a favourite spot in the house. However, I do love nothing better than my bookcase, my books and my kindle app on my ipad mini. These are my home comforts. I love curling up on my bed in my pjs and reading a good book. My bookcase started getting too full a year or so back, so I donated I load of books to our library, friends and family. Now I mainly buy on my kindle, it’s far too easy, I see a book I want and have it instantly. No trips to the shop or waiting on it being delivered. But, it’s oh so good and I can read into the wee dark hours of the morning without a light on or disturbing anyone. Don’t get me wrong a real book is magical, opening that cover and seeing the words on the page is a wondrous sight. This is not the same on ebook format, is it?
Here is my bookcase, this is my home comfort, it might not be tidy, it might not be in order and a lot are two books deep, but they are mine and I love them.
What home comforts am I missing out on? Do you prefer books or ebooks?
