It's hard to believe that summer is almost over. Well, if we had more summer-like weather, I might feel differently. But, school is already in session in many areas. Wouldn't you like to take these pink and orange pencils to school?
Back to school means it's time to hit the books. I mourn the day that actual books disappear. Is it possible that one day we'll only read books on digital devices? I hope not, I have too many fond memories of growing up with books: reading to my little sister, hiding under the covers while reading Nancy Drew (yes, I was scared of what might happen next!), joining the reading club at the library during summer vacation.
There's nothing like holding a paper book in your hands, turning each page anxiously awaiting what's next, and using the receipt as a bookmark. Oh yes, the digital books might look pretty on the screen, but I'm not ready to jump into the digital world 100% just yet.

Give me a good old fashion pencil and a notebook and I'm a happy camper. What about you?
