Announcing New Blog Theme: Reading Matters@IPRH

In an age of the virtual book—and a myriad of other delivery systems for the written word—reading matters more than ever. Watch this space for posts about how people live with reading now.

In addition, we want to hear from you. What are you reading? What’s by your bed, on your Kindle or on your iPad? What novels, poems, monographs, articles or blogs are you in the throes of? Does the medium matter? And what do you recommend that we all read?

We invite contributors from all parts of campus and beyond to tell us what reading matters to them—past, present or future—and why. If you want to contribute, contact Antoinette Burton at
