Constant Evolving

 

Reading a collection of words, more commonly known as reading books, has been the oldest form of entertainment for the privileged. As time has gone on and reading has become necessary and accessible to more…and let’s be honest here, illiteracy is an issue and we should acknowledge that…we want to ask the question: what’s next?

We have traditionally-printed novels, in the masses. There are eBooks, in the millions, for those who like to read on the run. The technology which has given us audiobooks makes it easier for those just as busy to listen and work, not losing out on the art of reading. Visual storytelling, choose-your-own adventure stories, Kindle in Motion…the list goes on!

But what technology is on the current rise? What can inspire the next generation of readers – to keep the act of reading alive?

Do you see yourself creating a robot, or purchasing one, to have creative discussions with about the books you’re reading? Or maybe using voice tech, we can pick and choose who we want to narrate the book we’re reading when it’s convenient for us.

What do you think is next? And what’s your favorite way or ways to read?

We want to hear!

    As a narrator, I’m betting on audiobooks! But seriously… print won’t go out of style. As long as humans occupy flesh and blood bodies, many of us will always appreciate the feel of paper in our hands.

    Reblogged this on Author S. L. Danielson and commented:
    Interesting! I think…the AI will help and have androids talk to you in your chosen voice or tone, or wear a special headband where a ‘movie’ of the book plays out in front of your eyes. As for illiteracy…have dedicated volunteer outreach to homeless and social workers?

    I prefer real books, and then ebooks. Although quite popular, audiobooks just put me to sleep.

    Hi HR,

    Book always trump the others. However it’s nice to hear a great audio book on a long ride.
