Isn't that something? I wand in holds one day a week
at our branch library, and I've noticed that the books
are getting bigger and heavier. For us older folks,
it's hard to lift them. I'm amazed that the kids are
willing to read Harry Potter. Each book is bigger and
heavier than the last. My theory is that books cost so
much these days authors and publishers think people
must have a lot of pages so they think they're getting
value for their money (grin).
