"We’re lucky to live in a time with multiple ways to enjoy our stories, such as ebooks, ereaders, audiobooks, podcasts and ... twitter books? But will these technologies mean the demise of the printed book?... I’m a firm believer that once people get hooked on new ways to enjoy stories, they will want to absorb them in as many ways as possible, be it DVDs, online, audiobook, ebooks, podcasts, whatever."
Elizabeth has collected a variety of posts and resources about technology and reading. Here are today's links:

- Don't miss the Share a Story - Shape a Future Literacy Resource Kit, assembed by the tireless Susan Stephenson and Terry Doherty. This resource kit includes a compilation of ideas that many of you shared on my post about ways to encourage reading aloud. It's both gorgeous and filled with great ideas.
Please do continue visiting the Share a Story - Shape a Future website and commenting on the various posts. There's been a lot of great discussion this week, and I know that the energy and enthusiasm for children's literacy will continue! Many thanks to the Share a Story - Shape a Future team for this amazing event! I'll have more thoughts over the weekend.
