Even though I have a Kindle and read a lot of books electronically, I am still a huge fan of Real Books. The kind you can hold in your hand. I also found I don't like art books on my Kindle.
I do often use Amazon for buying books, and you know how they are good about convincing you since you bought This, you would surely be interested in That, because other people who bought This were interested in it. One day, a book popped up on the recommendation list that I had never heard of. The title is simple "S". One of the authors caught my eye: J J Abrams. He was involved in some of my favorite TV shows, like Lost and Fringe.
The book is described this way:
A young woman picks up a book left behind by a stranger. Inside it are his margin notes, which reveal a reader entranced by the story and by its mysterious author. She responds with notes of her own, leaving the book for the stranger, and so begins an unlikely conversation that plunges them both into the unknown.
Unfortunately, it was not in stock. I clicked on "yes" to notify me when it was back in stock. I was very patient. Months went by until a copy was available.
It looks like an old library book, with an embossed design on the fabric-like cover and yellowed pages inside. It came in a slip cover, and I hated to even break the seal on the cover because it was so cool.
