Ebooks Are Changing The Way We Read And The Way Novelists Write

A thought provoking article in today’s guardian (10 August 2015). The author argues that in a world subject to multiple online distractions the way in which we read books is changing. Readers now flick between messages from friends back to their ebook rather than, as in times past devoting their whole attention to a book. In effect our attention span is less than was the case prior to the proliferation of technology, particularly mobile devices. The author also contends that ebooks are changing the way in which authors write.

      Thanks Chris. I don’t have a lot of technical expertise as regards such things. I will, however ask Trigger’s advice as he is a bit of a technical wiz! Seriously, I think it is a good idea and will implement it. Best. Kevin
