My recent move across the country has given me occasion to reflect again on some of the reasons that I strongly prefer Logos books to print books. On many occasions over the last several weeks, I have had feelings of strong dislike toward print books—like when I was
- spending hours and hours looking for boxes
- spending even more hours packing those boxes (packing books properly takes a lot of time)
- moving those heavy boxes around the house to get them out of the way
- calculating how much it was going to cost to move them 2,900 miles
- loading the truck to move out here (though I was glad to have the help of several friends, who were, by the way, not very fond of my print books either!)
- unloading all of those boxes (without the help of my friends!) up to our second floor condo
- spending hundreds of dollars on seven new bookshelves
- spending hours putting those bookshelves together.
My hard feelings toward print books linger, as I
- continue unpacking all 40 of those boxes
- anticipate organizing and shelving all 1500 or so of those books
- think of ever moving them again
- reflect on how all of my books in my Libronix library were so easy to pack up, move, and unpack; how much money they saved me; and how easy and efficient they are to organize and use!
I guess I can be thankful that the other 3,500+ books in my library are Logos books rather than print books!
This move has just further confirmed for me what I was already convinced of: the incredible value and superiority of my Libronix library to my print library. The way I look at it, print books are something I must have and continue to use only until Logos releases them. I’m thrilled that Logos is doing so at an ever increasing rate—now with more than 8,000 resources available!
I’ve only scratched the surface of the superiority of Logos books to print books. For more, see these previous posts:
