George & Joan, Thinking Out Loud: How Reading Is Changing

In this episode of Thinking Out Loud, George Needham and Joan Frye Williams take a look at current trends in reading. Specifically, George talks about his Kindle and they both riff on what the Kindle and other e-book readers of its ilk affect how and what we read.
For those of you who listen closely, you’ll hear Joan reference something called the “ImaginoTransferenceDevice” and if you’re like me, you’re wondering what the heck that is. It’s a term/concept coined by Jasper Fforde, and you can read more about it here.
Next up: they look at the NEA report, To Read or Not to Read – so stay tuned!
