R U Really Reading?

The Future of Reading
Published: July 27, 2008 
              Although this article is only from 2008, the sites mentioned are already a bit outdated. Yet, the article still brings up an interesting point. Even though we are constantly inundated with "text" on the internet, how much of what we actually do online can be classified as reading?  What is the impact of these technologies on future literacy levels and "what does it means to read in the digital age"?  Does our constant use of SNS effect our reading practices if future generations spend more time "liking" Harry Potter on facebook than actually reading the books?
