Thanks, everyone, for your patience during my few-weeks hiatus from The Late Age of Print blog. My partner and I are thrilled to have had a child in early January. Ever since then life has felt like something of a time warp. I should have anticipated needing to take a short break from blogging, but I guess the hubris of first-time-parenting got the better of me. In any case we’re all beginning to settle into something of a routine — to whatever extent you can call the first month of anyone’s life “routine.” As I write this, our little guy is chilling in a bassinet right next to me.
I’m not exactly sure what the immediate future holds for this blog, beyond the fact that I intend to keep it up, running, and active. I suspect that I’ll be making shorter (and hopefully more frequent) posts, but we’ll see. In any case, please be sure to keep coming back; more content will indeed follow shortly.
Until then, don’t forget that you can download a PDF of the complete text The Late Age of Print: Everyday Book Culture from Consumerism to Control for free by clicking on the DOWNLOAD link at the top of the page. Happy new year and enjoy.
