Share a Story, Shape a Future: Day 5
Posted by: Mary Burkey

Welcome to Day 5 of the Share a Story, Shape a Future blog tour – be sure to visit all of the sites focusing on literacy this week. Today’s focus is “Technology and Reading – What the Future Holds” and is hosted by Elizabeth O. Dulemba. Visit Elizabeth’s blog for the complete post with information on audiobooks from Bruce Coville , E-books from Harold Underdow & Sheila Ruth, podcasts with Andrea Ross & Cheryl Rainfield, and more. Elizabeth will also have a complete interview with me on her blog on Monday, March 16th. Here’s a recap of the pointers to information from Audiobooker that I shared with Elizabeth:
