Books are no more threatened by Kindle than stairs by elevators

Thu 05 Sep, 2013 - ELAN Classifieds

Let's prove that this quote by Stephen Fry is true. I'm currently building a bookshelfie (picture one takes of oneself in front of a bookhelf) gallery and am looking for people to submit their pictures to show the world that books are still alive and lovec (see the gallery here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/100792925@N03/.)

In exchange for your picture, I will glady link back to or showcase your work on my social media (my facebook page has an average reach of 500/people/week).

If you'd like to join in on the fun, send your bookshelfie to scbecauseican@gmail.com. Include your first name and location as well.

Thank you very much!
