Evolution of my reading habits
Let me pretend to drop some bars,
On how my reading habits have evolved,
Over recent years,
Maybe it represents changes in society, a voice said in my ear,
Let's see what the changes have been, yeah?
At one phase, I read two paperbacks a month,
Then, I discovered audible and stopped,
Better to have it read to me from someone else's mouth.
Later, it was blogs that I found
Simple summaries of concepts, stories and opinions that abound,
My learning increased, though for its correctness I couldn't account,
These days it's Twitter and blog summaries...
Complex ideas expressed in 140 characters or less
The promising ones with links I then click
And follow through to read more or vex
That click-bait got me, more or less
Society, I think is evolving
Attention spans, I believe are dissolving
Education and learning needs to be delivered in bits
Bits. Digital, not analog
Bits. Little pieces; not prose that is long.
Why? Because society, I think, is evolving.
