All this week, Marketplace Tech is taking a closer look at technology and the ways in which it influences how we read.

Already, Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson has spoken with Marketplace’s LearningCurve reporter Adriene Hill on how tablets are being used in schools as education tools, and author Jason Boog about his new book, “Born Reading: Bringing Up Bookworms in a Digital Age.” 

But how has technology changed the way adults read? Well, as you might expect, the answer is complicated.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
