At the Blog Off offices, we’re a pretty literate bunch and we know that the people drawn to participate in our bi-weekly Blog Offs are too. We’re forever prattling on about the latest thing we’ve read, what we’re reading now and what’s on our reading lists.
We’re more or less evenly split over whether or not we read on e-readers or if we prefer traditionally bound books, but that doesn’t matter. What matters is our shared love of the written word. Pundits like to claim that there’s some sort of “dumbing down” going on globally, and while it’s true that there’s a coarseness to pop culture, people have never had as many opportunities to read as they do today. That most of them take advantage of those opportunities gives us hope.
And that brings us to the topic for the next Blog Off. Just the other day we were sitting around having a heated discussion about the best books we’ve ever read and we’ve decided to open it up to the Blog Offing public. Whether it’s Dean Koontz or James Joyce, everybody has a favorite book. What’s yours? More importantly, why? And if you want to dig a little deeper, is the book you love literature? What is literature anyway?
So give it some thought and join us on Tuesday, August 30th. The whole blogosphere will be ignited with the pressing topic of what’s your favorite book?
