Description:
New technologies are changing our reading habits. Laptops, e-readers, tablets and other handheld devices supply new platforms for reading, and we must learn to manage them by scrolling, clicking or tapping. Reading Today places reading in current literary and cultural contexts in order to analyse how these contexts challenge our conceptions of who reads, what reading is, how we read, where we read, and for what purposes -- and then responds to the questions this analysis raises.

This book contains commentary on many topics that religious people preach from misunderstanding. This cognitive gap must be filled for it is inherently harmful to believe falsehoods, worse still to pass ignorance on to the next generation.
