Michael Dirda of Houston Chronicle offers a look at the modern state of literature and the Internet’s impact on literacy.
An interesting read, but I think he shortchanges the Internet (said the blog author). The fact is, the Internet is a valuable information resource. Just because people may let it steer them away from a good book is not the fault of the tool. And, for what it’s worth, I’m doing more than my fair share of reading, though the literary content of said reading is open to argument. 🙂
