Digital Reading Room

It has been six months since I last posted a list of must-read books for the digitally minded PR and marketing types among us. Here is the latest compendium of long-form works that hopefully will complement the information bursts that incessantly stream across your desktops, laptops, iPads and smart phones.

I’m certain I missed a few, so please add others in the comments section below.
