I believe style can be refered to in many different categories. For example, your writing style, your own style in reference to fashion, and or the style or genre of music you prefer. Style is initially what you bring to the table. Your style makes you unique. For example, some writers may like the style of Compare and Contrast which may not be unique, but the way they prove their argument is. Someone may have the same “fashion sense” as someone else but the way they wear the item is all their own.
How important are books to us? In today’s world many of our past practices have faded away (i.e. buying books, writing letters, spending ample amounts of time in the library). Now I’m not assuming that no one does this anymore; I’m pointing out that as time goes on we seem to forget what used to matter. In our society, magazines are more popular now than a book. Of course we have Amazon’s “Kindle” and can read books online but has anyone thought of what is lost? From having a book published, to having a book signing, the interaction with the author you love is lost. Of course there are book signings today but few and far in between. As an avid reader, letter writer, I hope as time goes on what I grew up with isn’t lost.
