F1. 21st Century Reading
Perhaps I am an optimist, but I believe that there is no better time to be a reader than now. The information age not only allows us wide access to books in digital formats and audio formats, but it also creates an atmosphere where young readers can easily share book recommendations on social platforms and where young writers can self publish works to receive feedback and opportunities for collaboration. While I will always love turning the paper pages in a book, that “analog” style of reading is going nowhere and will only be supplemented by digital reading. I think that the future is bright for reading in the 21st century.
