Church Books Built on Storied Architecture by Design

Discover Church on the top shelf

When you find yourself surrounded by books eight feet high and climb the stairs only to hit a glass ceiling you know you’re working in publishing. They’ve stuck you in a room and locked the closet door but there must be a way out. There is, Church Publishing is hiring.

After spending this week curled up on the sofa working on the fifth edition of Cosmo Starlight’s Freedom Incorporated work is still not complete and I sometimes think Church is a made up story. Books have become our foundation but I can’t see any lying around because they’re all on the computer screen.  It’s almost as if our President has reallocated everything in print just to build his eHouse, sparing trees which could be more useful as his shelter. eLiterature proves reading is more economical and accessible online.

But, if only there were a way for people to see how many books Church Publishing has to choose from online, here it is!

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

In the future books will exist but there won’t be as many per capita print editions per title. And at the current level of technological advancement trees are better off serving as bookshelves,

or re-purposed as chairs.

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

but people aren’t turning books into trash.

Books aren’t on the chopping block.

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

Relax, and become an eBook person!
