I like to think of myself as a prolific reader, though not in the traditional sense of having read hundreds of books. Rather, my reading is predominantly of the electronic sort, done by taking in an extensive amount of material found online. Each day I find myself scouring and devouring content on various subjects that interest me, so while I don’t read tons of books each year, it feels like I’m reading the equivalent of many books each year. This isn’t to say that electronic reading is better than paper reading, and I will gladly affirm that there is something special about the feel of a book in your hands. I am also not abandoning physical media completely – the fifty or so books on my bookshelf and my subscription to The Economist are a testament to that. However, electronic reading is undeniably more convenient than traditional reading, and for the foreseeable future it’s how I’ll be doing most of my reading.
