Irish Media Agency 2011 3rd June 2011This week: The blog: To ReadandE-Read? of search The latest insights or analysis twitter.com/MindshareIRL blog.mindshare.ie A few words from Keith Wallace youtube.com/MindshareIRL To Read or to E-Read? by Mark James I’m currently reading the novel ‘Super Sad True Love Story‘ by Gary Shteyngart (on my Kindle). In this inventive, nostalgic, immigrant novel set in the near future, the hero or anti-hero clings on to an old-fashioned love for books.
