An interesting new blog on Slow Reading has been launched.
It is interesting to see slow reading defined as part of a resistance to the hectic pace of modern life. This is something I can see the sense of.
We all need to slow down at times, for true appreciation to take place. And books do offer the haptic dimensions that make slow reading more likely.
What is also encouraging about this blog is that it does not deride electronic books, rather it seeks to find their place in our range of information/entertainment sources.
