Reading literature in digital environments.  

 

But for the record, consult also the journal, _Computers and Composition_, at http://computersandcomposition.candcblog.org/default.html , which has been publishing research into the effects of computers on reading and writing since 1983.

Wendi Pillars's curator insight, May 14, 2013 10:28 AM

Regardless, reading is still a very good thing :)

Meagan Louise's curator insight, May 14, 2013 7:30 PM

I like and dislike the e-readers. The idea is fantastic but I think Im going to hold of using them as I just love the smell of paper books.
