Sizzling Summer Reading

The medium is the message. Marshall McLuhan

North America's summer reading has been launched. Head out to the beach, pool, or cottage, sporting a sleek, new e-reader. The prolific expansion of digital devices has revolutionized the reading sizzle, providing downloaded palm-size fare. E-readers offer convenience, superior deliverability, and anonymity.

On the print side, books offer fanciful cover art in a public domain. Readers advertise their cultural choices. Books bring out the extrovert, a proclamation of personal taste.

The point, after all, is to read. Summer is here. Get out your e-readers, books, and magazines, and read!
