Despite E-readers, Book Swap Remains a Popular Tradition

Published on Mon, March 26, 2012

With more and more people turning to e-readers, the traditional paper-bound book seems obsolete—or does it? "Not quite," says Ann Bush, Ph.D., associate professor of English. According to Dr. Bush, traditional books remain popular among her literature students, and that popularity can be seen at the biennial book swap.

On Tuesday, March 27, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., in Nazareth Hall's Fireplace Lounge, Marywood will host the community book swap. Admission is free.

Proceeds from the book swap will benefit members of Lamba Iota Tau, the International Honor Society for Students of Literature, through scholarships, Campus Ministry-related projects and the Marywood library.

Listen to Kenny Luck, coordindator of public relations and new media, talk with Dr. Ann Bush and Annette Fisher:
