I bought a Nook some months ago thinking that it would help me be the voracious reader that I was growing up (my attention span is worse than ever). It hasn’t really made a difference. With so much to do and so many distractions reading is always put on the back burner, and the truth is, I still prefer the feel of a real book.
Part of the problem, for me anyway, is the knowing that the book will sit on that back burner indefinitely until you get around to it. But what if it didn’t. What if the words in a book began to disappear giving the reader only two months to read them? Would this give the reader (me?) a sense of urgency?
The folks at Eterna Cadencia, Argentenian independent publishers, thought so, and published The Book that Can’t Wait to motivate readers to read, giving new authors a better opportunity to write their second book.
What do you think?
