The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme with a prompt featuring a book related question. The hop begins on a Friday and ends on a Thursday and should hopefully give people the opportunity to learn something new about the blogger.
The Book Blogger Hop can be found on Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer and obviously my answers can be found here!
*question submitted by Maria at A Night’s Dream of Books*
Books are mashed up trees which have been turned into paper before being printed with ink, bound together and sold for people to read. This is their physical form.
Sometimes they look beautiful and sometimes they look dull but that’s just the outside. The inside contains words which offer up messages to people on a variety of subjects. Sometimes there are multiple messages in one volume. Hope, despair, survival, death, hate and love are all recorded down in many different ways and are projected directly into people’s brains by the use of imagination.
Books act as the vessel for limitless travel, sometimes to places that the human body will never be able to visit and sometimes to places that don’t exist. Creatures are created and people are invented and although it may take hours to read a book, the reader has traveled days or months or years. This can be forwards or backwards in time.
Books don’t move a person’s body but the mind never remains in the same place.
So there’s my take. What would you say to someone in the future? I’m going off the assumption that they know what trees are. I certainly hope they still know what trees are. But maybe that’s why there’s no more books?
