New York's Alright If You Like Saxophones

Give yourself 5 bonus points if you know the band and album where I got the title of this post. I really like the sound of a well played sax.  There is something about a saxophone that sounds smooth and sophisticated and dirty and gritty at the same time.  Here are a couple close up shots of an alto sax.

Books: Old And New

I enjoy reading and recently have done more reading on my iPad but I still prefer a book.  Using a tablet or ereader is highly convenient and a very good way to bring multiple books with you at all times.  I have more than a few books loaded up and waiting for me to read. That being said I still love books, physical paperback and hardcover books.  There is something about holding the actual book in your hand and reading it, using a real bookmark or folding the corner of the page that is calming.  Maybe it's nostalgia or maybe I'm getting old. Or maybe, just maybe, books are cool. Click For A Larger View
