How We Read Before iPads

When I was growing up, if we wanted to read a book, all we needed was, and you’re never going to guess this: A book! We didn’t need a kindle, or a tablet, or an iPad or have to worry about carrying a charging block and cables. A simple book would suffice.
The best thing about reading actual books was that they didn’t have the internet. So when you picked one up, there were no interruptions or distractions … you just read your damn book, and you enjoyed it. You didn’t go wandering off to Facebook or start down a YouTube wormhole of watching unlikely animal friendship videos.
Alright, I’ll come clean. I love reading eBooks on my tablet. But also, to my fellow book lovers, (who I’m sure can relate) here are some questions I’ve been asking myself:
Why do you have more books than you could ever read in your lifetime? You have so many books.
WHY ARE YOU BUYING MORE BOOKS?!
I’m starting to think that buying books is a completely separate hobby from actually reading books.
But also, has anyone got any good book recommendations?
