(via Tim) I’ve been lamenting lately how difficult it has become for me to read books these days because a) I think my brain is getting used to the shorter snippets of blog reading and b) because they don’t have any links. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to click on a word to see what it means or get more information from a primary source.

Well, there looks like there might somewhat of a solution to problem b) from Atlantic Monthly which has woven the hypertext idea into the cover article about talk radio. If you’re quick, you can see the entire .pdf of what it looks like. I like the concept, but I think I’m more into the digital book idea, with hypertext built in. I love reading on my tablet. But I haven’t had a chance to do the digital book thing to any great degree yet. Probably should hurry up and get there before my brain starts shutting down on anything longer than 5 or 6 paragraphs…
