How Do I Love Reading? Let Me Count the Ways
This February in the eReading Room we'll be celebrating all the different ways we love to read. If you're the kind of person who will read a cereal box if it's the only thing nearby, you'll want to pay special attention to this four-part series. I'll be detailing some of the new ways we read now, outside of the traditional printed-and-bound-and-published volume (which, don't get me wrong, we still love just as much). This purpose of this series is to help you get the most out of online reading at work, at home, or on the go.
I Love Reading: PDF and EPUB
All about ebooks and other downloadable text. Whether you have an ereader or mobile device, you read on your computer, or (gasp!) you just print everything out, this post will explain the differences between formats, help you manage your files, and demystify Digital Rights Management (DRM).
I Love Reading: News, Blogs, Twitter
As print newspaper subscriptions continue to decline, more people look to the internet for up-to-the-minute news. This post will explain how to stay on top of sources of news and current information — and also how to avoid that feeling of info overload.
I Love Reading: Magazines and Long Form Journalism
Sometimes a true story of a unimaginable crime, an industry exposé, or a larger than life personality can be just as gripping as a work of fiction. Many magazines specialize in this type of journalism, and this post will share how online communities have formed around keeping this type of reading alive.
I Love Reading: Bookmarks, Pins, Favorites, Sharing
Maybe you read it and loved it and want to share it with others in your community, maybe you need to collect a bibliography for a project or paper, or maybe you want to save something to read or reference later. This post will discuss ways to save the things you read.
Is there anything in particular you'd like to see addressed on any of these topics? Please leave a comment!
