On Sunday my little brother posted the following quote:
“We need to make books cool again. If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them.” - John Waters
Since then I have seen this quote a few times and it has me thinking… Books are cool! Books are cool just like vinyl is cool. And with vinyl on its way back (for me at least) why can’t we bring books back too?! As far as I’m concerned vinyl is back because any time you purchase vinyl you get a free digital download. Which, as we all know, is perfect because we live in a digital age where everyone (minus some ancient people and societies) has some sort of digital music device. With the uprise of such devices as Apple’s iPad and Amazon’s Kindle people are starting to read digitally as well. So, my thought is this: why not have Books live on by having a digital download with every book purchase?! Book companies everywhere take note. I think it’ll work!
