Guest Post: A World Without Books by Suzanne de Montigny
Today I'm delighted to host Suzanne de Montigny, author of The Shadow of the Unicorn: The Legacy. Take it away, Suzanne!
A world without books is really scary. I look at my own two boys and how much time they spend playing computer games if I let them. I’ve explained to them that those games are an addiction and are preventing them from developing their talents. While they vegetate in front of the computer screen, someone else is getting rich. It reminds me of the old opium dens that ruined families. The opium lords became very wealthy while patrons sat around in a stupor, throwing their families into a state of poverty.
My younger son used to be an avid reader. Now he can’t even finish a book because it doesn’t move as fast as his games. Even watching tv is too slow for my boys. They oftentimes try to game while watching a movie until I catch them. I can’t begin to tell you how often I’ve locked iPads, iPods, and MacBooks in our safe.
