Dirty fingerprints crust the pages
Of the books of forgotten lore
That have laid here before all ages
Untouched from before-

Unconcerned with reason or rhyme,
Longing for those finger-shaped prints,
They have waited all this time,
To be imprinted with darkened tints

But all that meets them is the chilly air,
And the quiet whispers of phantoms past;
And still they wait with silent flair,
To be marked with fingers again at last
For the #Live-Love-Write writing prompt. XD

It might sound weird but I do believe that books really wait for someone to read them. It's like they have emotions.

Books do contain emotions. They're an extension of they're owner's. :)

I prefer fantasy myself, but I'm not adverse to a good classic or realistic fiction. Mythology is epic! XD

I must admit to having a secret passion for Jane Eyre...and Pride and Prejudice (I squealed when Mr.Darcy and Elizabeth got together).

I won't. Trust me. I've got a kindle, but all I do on it is go on the internet and play games. Normal books are much better-it's just not the same.

To be fair, quite a few books are cheaper as e-books than in print, which helps balance out the price of the Kindle. :) Sometimes I'm tempted to get one just for that, actually, for the nonfiction or reference books that I don't really feel the need to cuddle with...
