Welcome to my last blogging portfolio for Topics in Media and Culture: The History and the Future of the Book! In fact, it is my last blogging portfolio ever! Although this makes me a little less happy than I thought it would, it is nice to be able to showcase my accomplishments during the last third of the semester. I have included some of the blogs I wrote for class, some that I wrote for other classes, and finally, a blog about my final paper. I hope you enjoy it!
