In honour of Family Literacy Day, which was on Wednesday, here are a few very different articles, all about reading:
- How Paperbacks Transformed the Way Americans Read – Really about how paperbacks changed the publishing business.
- Paper or Tablet? Reading Recall and Comprehension – Speaking of how new technologies transform reading habits, this study examining reading with different technologies also contains a nice summary of recent research into how we read differently when we read electronically.
- Why Fiction Matters – A series of essays by different authors, commissioned by the Centre for Fiction.
Happy Friday, and happy reading!
