Today the question is: Is today’s generation more aware of the literary art or less?How do you think concepts such as Kindle, and e-books have changed the present or future of reading?
Books versus ebooks
Last week’s discussion: What is your view on co-authoring books; have you done any?
The meetings about how to set up the book and what to include in it were really interesting as three of us discussed our ideas. As we did this the original idea was reworked into what seemed a cohesive plan. We each took on several aspects and then edited each others work until the book became cohesive and workable. All three of us were open to the others ideas and no one forced their ideas as better than any others. Choosing the people with whom to collaborate would be the most important aspect of starting to do a book together as it takes listening, rethinking, planning to do it well. and scheduling things into our busy lives made it a challenge. We’ve had only good feedback about the book.
I found it to be a fascinating project.
