From the author of Proust and the Squid, a lively, ambitious, and deeply informative epistolary book that considers the future of the reading brain and our capacity for critical thinking, empathy, and reflection as we become increasingly dependent on digital technologies. A decade ago, Maryanne Wolf’s Proust and the Squid revealed what we know about how the brain learns to read and how reading changes the way we think and feel. Since then, the ways we process written language have changed dramatically with many concerned about both their own changes and that of children. New research on the reading brain chronicles these changes in the brains of children and adults as they learn to read while immersed in a digitally dominated medium. Drawing deeply on this research, this audiobook comprises a series of letters Wolf writes to us to describe her concerns and her hopes about what is happening to the reading brain as it unavoidably changes to adapt to digital mediums. Wolf raises difficult questions, including: Will children learn to incorporate the full range of ´´deep reading´´ processes that are at the core of the expert reading brain? Will the mix of a seemingly infinite set of distractions for children’s attention and their quick access to immediate, voluminous information alter their ability to think for themselves? With information at their fingertips, will the next generation learn to build their own storehouse of knowledge, which could impede the ability to make analogies and draw inferences from what they know? Will all these influences, in turn, change the formation in children and the use in adults of ´´slower´´ cognitive processes like critical thinking, personal reflection, imagination, and empathy that comprise deep reading and that influence both how we think and how we live our lives? Will the chain of digital influences ultimately influence the use of the critical analyt... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kirsten Potter.

This audiobook is the second volume of the reading/listening book series ¡Buen Camino!, which is intended for intermediate-level Spanish learners. Please note that this book will not be as effective if you only listen to the audio. (There is a paperback as well as a Kindle edition.) Its effectiveness results from the simultaneous combination of Spanish reading and listening. The cognitive process of assimilating to and comprehending the language is enhanced when the audio is played while the student reads. It is very effective for new Spanish learners as well as for heritage learners who are familiar with words but don´t know how to write in Spanish. Most of the vocabulary has been carefully selected to match vocabulary selections and grammar tenses appropriate in introductory Spanish textbooks. This story incorporates present, preterit, and imperfect tenses. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mercedes Meier. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/040270/bk_acx0_040270_sample.mp3.

Since it first appeared in 1961 this has been the standard critical edition of Ovid´s love poems. For this new edition the text has been thoroughly revised to take account of published scholarship and the further thoughts of the editor. Conjectures have been admitted to both text and apparatus criticus more freely than in the first edition. Punctuation has been improved, spelling has been normalized, and the long poems have been paragraphed. The apparatus criticus now incorporates the reading of the important Berlin manuscript Hamilton 471; it has also been streamlined by the omission of explanatory material more conveniently accessible in commentaries.
In Ivanhoe Scott fashioned an imperial myth of national cultural identity that has shaped the popular imagination ever since its first appearance at the end of 1819. The most famous of Scottish novelists drew on the conventions of Gothic fiction, including its risky sexual and racial themes, to explore the violent origins and limits of English nationality. Based on the 1830 Magnum Opus text of Ivanhoe, this is the first modern edition to make corrections against Scott´s working materials and incorporates readings from Scott´s manuscript.
