Wheels and pages churning a community.

“Books will go by the way of 8 tracks.” I clearly remember this argument when ebooks surfaced.

In our third week of our Nanticoke River Watershed Conservancy book talk, I find there is a place and time for anything, and I do enjoy a Kindle ebook on a long tour or bus ride, it allows me to read and not carry a ton.

At the same time, there is power in having a physical book and being able to turn to a page, it is personal, and in the case where we have the ability to place a book in the hands of individuals and they can keep it as a memory, a tool, and reference to future projects, taking an idea out of the pages and turn it into a possibility in your community?

That is page turning.

Speaking of books, here is a GREAT preview of a thesis and beginning Chapter of Ritual Landcapes, by Glenn Mellin and Lennie Truitt – more to come 🙂
