In what ways the technological development has effected Book Reading?
So far as I am concerned technological developments have not affected my reading habits at all. I still read every day - and only paper copies of books. I would not want to own a Kindle. I don't know if the advent of Kindle readers has encouraged more people to read or not. However, I think that technology has had an adverse impact on the development of a reading habit of some children - it seems that they would rather watch tv or play computer games than read a book. And many teenagers appear to be permanently attached to their cell phones so don't have a free hand to turn the pages of a book!! (If only they knew what they are missing!)
Sadly, it has lead to the demise of many big chain book stores, therefore, a decrease in reading hard copy books. . Browsing books, picking them up, holding them and embracing the crispness of new books, has now been relegated to surfing Amazon for the next e-book download. Ho hum. I'm looking forward to going to the DC book festival in September.
I think it's the next step in the evolution of readership. First we had drawings, then we had scriptures, then books, now e-books.
I don't think it has made such a huge effect. Just the method of reading has changed (you can argue writing then has changed since it's being communicated through a different medium, but that's a whole other ball game). I don't think it has affected book reading. If anything, it's pulling in younger generations who don't want to carry around bulky books.
