There is more treasure in books than all the pirate’s loot on treasure island.–Walt Disney
I found that quote on a RIF post on Facebook. The irony is that now people watch Disney movies rather than read the books on which they were based. My husband and kids watched The Jungle Book recently. It was a good movie. The book was also very good, though, and the odds of most kids ever reading it are low. My kids might, because I own the book and treasure it, but maybe not. The screen is so much flashier and hard to ignore. It’s easier to watch a story than to read it, and everything’s on screen now, thanks in large part to Walt Disney. So I agree with the quote, and I want to like it, but I can hardly bear the irony.
