Church Books Built on Storied Architecture by Design

Find us in the closet, on the top shelf

When you find yourself surrounded by books eight feet high and climb the stairs only to hit a glass ceiling, then you know you’re working in publishing. They’ve stuck me in this ‘room’ and locked the closet door. There must be a way out of here. I heard they’re hiring at Church Publishing.

After spending this week curled up on the sofa working on the fifth edition of Cosmo Starlight’s “Freedom Incorporated” my work’s still not complete, click the photo below to read the novel’s description.

Sometimes I think Church is a made up story. Actually it is, it’s a publishing company. Books are our foundation butI can’t see any books laying around, they’re all on my computer screen!  It’s almost as if our President has reallocated everything in print just to build his ehouse, sparing trees that could be used for a more useful purpose like building his shelter. eLit really proves reading is more economical and accessible online.

If only there were a way for the people to see just how many books there are to choose from online. Here it is!

Believe it or not, the world was built on books. Everything you see and touch, eat, smell, learn about and repeat is in a book someplace. Books have been used for hundreds of years to build our societies.

And in the future books will still exist but there won’t be as many per capita print editions (per title). At our level of technological advancement trees are better serving as bookshelves,

as desks,

and as repurposed chairs.

It scares some people the world will no longer look like this,

at Shakespeare & Company

or like this.

But many people aren’t turning books into trash.

Books aren’t on the chopping block.

and preserved behind glass to last a life time.

In the future there will even be places you can find books shelved on walls. Don’t freak out when bookshelves aren’t traditionally constructed either.
