Art Project Part III - Art Reading and Ebooks

I'm surprised at how many paintings that I'm finding of people with books. It just shows how much books are a part of our culture. In these two pictures the time frame is from1514 to 1850, over three hundred years, from when books were rare to when people started having their own large collections. While I love the ease of access and accessibly that ebooks provide to me, I do still love to browse a good bookstore and see what I can find. I sometimes wonder if we are at that time when milk delivery changed from being horse drawn to motor trucks. I remember one movie where the delivery person couldn't just give up his horse, so he had it walk with the truck, in the back instead of pulling. Are readers the new milk truck, which begs the question - Where are the milk trucks now?

  1. Summarizing and paraphrasing are essential skills for academic writing. You'll almost always rely on them to help present evidence and previous research that support your claims. As such, ensuring they are written well with a corrective English software can have a lot of bearing on what kinds of scores you eventually get on your essays, reports and papers.
