Elisabeth is enjoying a holiday this week, so Merianna is joined by Sam to discuss Kindle Unlimited, reading and writing in the age of notifications and Skinner Boxes, the benefits and pitfalls of assisted navigation in both reading and driving, whether listening to an audio book is actually “reading,” and if the podcast Serial will change the way publishers produce popular books.
