Young Readers Say No Thanks to Enhanced E-Reading | Digital Book World | Litteris | Scoop.it

Good question and one that every English major has discussed in at least one class. This and an author's observations about a text no longer being his own prompted a blog post: http://www.ejroberts.com/2015/03/writing-for-ones-self-and-world.html

Self-publishing does pay (Wired UK) | Litteris | Scoop.it

Getting a book published used to be simple: you'd write a proposal and shop it around publishers who --if you were lucky -- would pay you an advance and, eventually, a small share of any profits

7 Ways Reading Affects The Brain, From Increased Empathy To Feeling Metaphors

7 Ways Reading Affects The Brain, From Increased Empathy To Feeling Metaphors | Litteris | Scoop.it

by JR THORPE

 

The book, and even the simple act of reading, sometimes seems under threat of extinction. After a study in 2006 revealed that people “reading” text on the Internet only actually read about 20 percent of the content — (they skimmed the content in an F-shape, looking at the beginning of each line and then checking for important words) — it’s been yelled from the rooftops: Reading is over! We’ve forgotten how to do it! Tablets are killing our ability to digest text! All books will soon be recycled into packaging for our new iWatches! 

 

But science remains resolute, pointing out the many different ways in which reading still influences our lives — and our brains.

 

And there are many: from stress reduction to brain evolution to memory and empathy, reading is a pretty powerful tool. Careful where you point that novel.

Palavra Mágica

Palavra Mágica | Litteris | Scoop.it

O empréstimo de eBooks, iniciado em alguns países, pode propiciar no Brasil um impacto sem precedentes para as políticas públicas de promoção na leitura e educação, em especial em comunidades mais desfavorecidas. Três pilotos serão implementados entre março e setembro de 2014: na Rocinha, no Rio de Janeiro; na Biblioteca de São Paulo, no Parque da Juventude, antigo Presídio do Carandiru; e na Fundação Educandário, em Ribeirão Preto (SP), todos eles com um simbolismo próprio. Ao mesmo tempo em que amplia nessas comunidades o acesso a acervos amplos e fomenta, a partir das novas tecnologias, a leitura entre seus moradores, também faz uma importante sinalização: as novas possibilidades trazidas pela entrada dos livros na era digital podem, sim, ser colocadas a serviço das populações que mais carecem do acesso à informação, ao conhecimento e às novas oportunidades na vida.
