While it has its downsides, we can all pretty much agree that technology has advanced us in many extremely helpful ways.
Cars are much faster than horse and buggies; food much easier to heat in a microwave than over a fire, and modern medicine saves lives where others couldn't.
There is one aspect of technology that - while spatially helpful - is hard to fully embrace: the eBook. Yes, it fits much easier in your purse or carry-on than a dense book or two, but there is something lacking. Turning the pages, the smell of a new book, cracking the spine for the first time; these feelings cannot be duplicated while powering up a Kindle.
If you know what I'm talking about (and agree), you might want to look into buying this Magnolia home. The previous owners were obvious bibliophiles - just look at that home library! I'm seeing visions of Belle from Beauty in the Beast up a ladder on some of those walls.
The home is selling by Whitney & Virginia Mason of Coldwell Banker Bain for $1,395,000 and is four beds and three baths...click through the gallery to drool over them (and definitely take special note of the library).
