Only a book can talk to you over time!

This excerpt appeared in the December 2015 issue of Oprah magazine’s section on gifts that matter:

“…my grandfather Nehemiah’s Talmud, which he brought from Russia. He held the book so many times that there is an imprint of his palm on the cover.

My grandfather died before I could know him, but when I touch that palm print, it feels like I’m taking his hand.” – Mark Nepo

Could you ever say that about a Kindle or a tablet or an iPad?
