are books objects? or thought?

objects are important to me. they mean things. they are my identity, which is mutable, which rearranges itself, reflecting years of experience and considered growth and also they are messy, unaware, unexamined, dusty. arranged just so for some nonexistent viewer, and then ignored, left that way until they attract attention again. but books. are they objects? fabric covers; softening, pulpy paper particles settling and dispersing into flakes in the air; graphic logos and designs. but the words inside: they are meaning, which shifts with each new reading, they carry my selves as well. can i leave them, of all things?

  1. If it’s the same book, whether held in hand of read on kindle, then perhaps a book is thought. But both are everything anyway.
