Garland Arnaud on holding a new book in your hands.To paraphrase Garland: Even with all our technology, nothing compares to opening a new book, fresh off the press. One can almost feel the heart and soul of the author as you take in the smell and feel of binding and ink. Then comes the joy of turning each page, captured by the wonder of what comes next and how well each illustration moves the story into one’s imagination. The senses of the reader become focused on what's in the pages, not life all around. Physical time stops until the book is closed and set down.
