really liked it

Sven Birkerts adds to the growing body of literature and experience regarding a non-reading culture. When we do not read, we also loose our ability to learn deeply. And we loose our ability to converse. A must-read... for a society that appears to be reading less and less (though some evidence exists that say American is changing some).
