Paper or Plastic

Rebecca and I have much in common, but there is one thing we differ on. Rebecca loves the feel of a Phone Readerbook in her hands. She wants to curl up next to the fire and turn pages. Me, well, I love that too, but I also embrace new technology. I think it is amazing that our smartphones can do many things, including carry a small library of eBooks.

Today’s picture is The Nostrum Conspiracy on an Android 6s smartphone.  It is a joy to read a book on this phone, but sadly Rebecca clings to paper.

Our home is full of books. We love them and they spill off the shelves and find themselves in stacks next to the bed, on the coffee table and even on the kitchen counter. I love that, but I also love standing in the grocery line and reading a chapter on my phone.

The 21st century has brought us many wonders and one of them is the choice of paper or plastic. So friends, what do you prefer, eBooks or paper?

Peace out,
Robert

As long as Robert can remember, he wanted to be a writer. Like many young people who are called to a creative life, he had to contend with well-meaning friends and family members who discouraged it. While Robert spent most of his career as a successful attorney, he never forgot his dream. In the meantime, he pursued many other interests and was fortunate enough to have some amazing adventures. One of those interests was martial arts. He spent many years studying and teaching Chinese Internal Martial Arts. Robert promised his teacher he would someday write that book he always wanted to write and began to develop a story idea that pitted a young lawyer/martial artist against a powerful pharmaceutical company in a conflict over a miracle cure. The hero wants to insure the cure is freely available to everyone, but powerful enemies want to suppress it. The Nostrum Conspiracy is Robert’s second book. His first book, Naked Tao, breaks a few rules.

Robert has been blessed with an amazing life and it just keeps getting better. He lives in Louisville with his beautiful wife and children. "Bad Bob" is a tongue-in-cheek nick name bestowed upon him by his co-workers when he showed up at his law firm one day on a new Harley. Robert is a martial arts master and has taught over 600 students.
