Our modern reading habits

A quote from What Would Google Do? by Jeff Jarvis that I, and I’m sure many of you, can identify with:

So though I do fret about the unread books on my shelves and the virgin New Yorker magazines on my desk — as well as a constant stock of unread tabs in my browser — I also know that I learn volumes online every day. Is what I do now better or worse? I’m not sure that judgment is meaningful. I learn differently, discuss differently, see differently, think differently. Thinking differently is the key product and skill of the Google age.

I hope to have a full review of the book up tomorrow. (UPDATE July 20: Here it is.)
