ABC of Reading


Or A Norwegian Riff on Reading

In our Web 2.0 world, it is perhaps pleasing to be reminded of previous revolutions and dislocations.

With that in mind, check out this smile-making riff on the Book 1.0 posted to YouTube back in October 2006: “Introducing the Book”. I am now armed with whole set of tags to play with in YouTube as I must confess that “book”, “language” + “helpdesk” have never figured prominently in any of my YouTube forays.

For another sort of take on print culture and the history of book, there is always SHARP (Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing). This year’s annual SHARP conference will be taking place in Minneapolis from July 11-15th.
