From my reading page, where I keep track of the books I have read recently:
This Audible Original audiobook gained a lot of attention in certain circles when it was first released. I was once into audiobooks a lot more than I am now due to the nature of previous commutes (i.e. driving to work versus riding the bus), but I am a reader at heart more than a listener. This book is available (at least as of now) in audio form only and, honestly, I could listen to Richard Armitage read all day long. All that aside, David Hewson has adapted other Shakespeare plays into novels before and the idea intrigued me enough to purchase this. In short, this is possibly the best adaptation I have ever read/heard. The idea of taking a classic work of this magnitude and making it better is no small feat, but going a step further to revitalize and expound upon it is amazing. And I love Juliet as a strong-willed, intelligent, and much more feministic character.

Did the Internet community peak at bookmarks? Asked in a different and perhaps more complete way: just as technologies like RSS and email in their purest forms are hard to beat even as technology marches forward, what better technology exists to keep track of information on the ever-expanding Internet than bookmarks? Taken a step further, what better way to share the bookmarked information than a site of your own? As such, I‘ve been reading, which is why I write now.
Working in and having a passion for libraries, I am struck by the fact that the way bookmarks work in the physical world is not directly analogous to bookmarks in the digital world. Bookmarks in the digital world are instead like dog-eared pages or highlighted passages; if you think of the Internet as a single tome, that is. In any case, anything that moves you to deface a book should probably be shared or become immortalized in some other way than just a reference for a future version of yourself.
