Anybody out there read anymore?

This editorial in The Village Voice explores the question: are books even useful anymore? What are books for in today's world?

An interesting, if humanist, approach. I suggest you look it over.

Hat tip to ArtsJournal.

Ever read any books online? I can read books about two or three times faster when I'm reading online. I have no idea why. Check out my Project Gutenburg link at the garage. There are many great classics you can read online for free.

I was afraid that if I read a whole book online my eyes would get worse faster.

You have eye problems? I've gone temporarily blind. A rare condition called iritis.

I don't have eye problems now, unless you count needing a new prescription every 4 years or so.

I read for fun, then come online and read, then read for school, then to prepare for work, I (you guessed it!) read! I'm anticipating a nice age 50 complete blindness at this rate and I'm looking to postpone it by any means necessary.

It seems that reading a computer screen is less stress on my eyes than reading printed material. Especially those small print paperbacks. I have real problems with those these days. Who knows. I'm a guinea pig. I've spent the last 25 years of my life in front of a computer screen. When they pop my eyeballs out during the autopsy, there will probably be audible gasps.
