I DID IT!!! WOO! I have had a bucket of trouble with the exporting of my final project but it's finally here. Click here to download the file for my e-book about e-books! (Edit: I think I've fixed the errors with the file, but I'm adding a PDF file just in case, but unfortunately the … Continue reading i, Book: An Exploration of E-books by Ariel Bissett
WHAT A JOURNEY* WE'VE BEEN ON. As I mentioned throughout our course, I'm extremely disappointed by the lack of digital courses in English programs - we write all of our essays on a computer, we find our articles online, we read a lot of our texts as e-books, we complain about all of that work on … Continue reading THE FINAL BUTTER ARCHIVE 😢

I've been thinking a lot about why I haven't (and maybe why the world hasn't) taken interactive literature (like the ones we've been discussing) very seriously.
