My question to Lauren
"How will reading and writing
change with technology changing
how we read and write? " That was
what I wrote on a small piece of paper
to put in the box of questions for
Lauren Winner as she left a bit of
time at the end of her Writer's Workshop.
She picked it up at the end , right at
almost 3:00 and stopped the day by
just reading it.
My 4th son, who is almost 18 , tells me
that I will have a Kindle one day.
I laugh and chuckle because I have
a house full of books. Real leather,
real paper, even dust. He says that
because at one point I wasn't going
to have a cell phone and now it is
a must. All of my older sons only
have cell phones. So I wonder if I
will have a kindle in my lifetime.
I found a blog on the subject
( Why You Should Write in Your Books
Now) which examines the future
of real books made with paper.
The sun is starting to set on the golden age of the printed book. ....
Your writing is what will make your books cherished artifacts to your descendants.
There are virtual bookclubs, blogs,
new ways of reading and connecting
online and how will that change us?
We are already.
I found this through a link
from Ann Voscamp's blog, Holy
Experience. I think she is becoming
a household word. I smile at that,
thinking how God takes a mom on a
Canadian farm to write and glorify
His Name! God's way for sure.
