The Impending Death Of Books. Or Not.

Don't you miss the days when you had time to curl up with a good book, and read it from cover to cover?  Wait, did you ever really have such a time? 

Leah Price, English professor and book historian, asks that question and more in a book of her own that analyzes reading habits.  She's not sure a golden age of reading ever existed. 

Price makes the case in What We Talk About When We Talk About Books: The History and Future of Reading.  E-books and smartphones haven't killed books yet; the author of this book pays us a visit.
