As the sun was setting in Indianapolis, the rays projected the shadow of my sister, Teresa, reading a book on to the map drapery. Today books are a shadow of their prior prominance in homes. At one time home libraries gave visitors clues of your interests and displayed absorbed intelligence. Today a Kindle or Nook can hold and transfer as much information, but visitors gain no insights. Is that a loss or a benefit? Both in my humble opinion. Conversation starters are absent, but so are the piles of books my bookworm daughter never put away.
