How Do You Like to Read?  Roy Blount, Jr. on Print Books

Last week, the Association of American Publishers and the Book Industry Study Group shared the results of a survey stating that people are not only reading more ebooks than before, they are also reading more on their phone than they are designated ereading devices (Kindle, Nook, Kobo Reader, etc).   Here is an article in New York Magazine about that survey and what it means for publishers and for readers. Do you see that change in your own life? How do you like to read? Are there some books you like to read on devices but others you prefer in print? Tonight, writer and humorist Roy Blount, Jr. will be speaking at the Amherst campus about his storied writing career.  Here is an interview Roy did with Mo Rocca on CBS, sharing his particular love of print books: [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8R4i1af0zw]
