Reading and Surfing

November 29th, 2007

Why do some people become voracious readers? Motoko Rich has some thoughts.

Are people going online instead of reading books? A new study suggests that television might be the big loser: “The study found that 36% of respondents spent at least four to six hours of personal time on the Internet versus only 23% of respondents who spent that amount of time watching TV.”

Tiffany Sanders set out to read all the Loyola Classics books, but something happened: “The first book I ordered was Jon Hassler’s North of Hope, and I’m afraid it’s derailed me. I planned to work my way through the Classics list, but that’s going to have to wait until I’ve worked my way through Hassler’s other novels.”

Busted Halo loves Fr. Jim Martin’s new book A Jesuit Off-Broadway.

This is very beautiful: a high-definition image of Leonardo’s “Last Supper.” The same site also has an image of Pozzo’s fresco of the glory of St. Ignatius Loyola.
