I have just received my free book from Eisenbrauns. Biblioblog readers will remember that JPS announced this splendid scheme whereby if you subscribed to one of the RSS feeds, and were quick to respond to the Pavlovian stimulus of the words "free books" you might get sent a totally free book.
It may be serendipity, but I'd assume design played a part... Mine is Holy Spirit and Religious Experience in Christian Literature ca. AD 90-200. A little off my usual stamping ground (though less than a millennium away ;-) but it is by John Eifion Morgan-Wynne. Basically his doctoral thesis, supervised by James D.G. Dunn. John Morgan-Wynne was my New Testament tutor at Regents, many years ago, and a man who the description a Christian, scholar and gentleman fits in all parts! So I am delighted with this pleasant surprise.
Thank you Eisenbrauns! (I hope the scattering of links in this post boosts your Google ranking enormously ;-)
Using a codex
Funny video clip on You Tube, (Norwegian, but with English surtitles) showing a user interacting with the helpdesk as he struggles with the new technology.
And then perhaps join me in thinking about how we might script it differently...
One thing I'd do is add a sequence where the helpdesk guy (HG) explains how the new technology allows non-sequential reading, and the new user (NU) complains that this will mean that readers will never again experience a book as the author intended, from start to finish.
If I think of more I will add them here (dating them) and if you post ones that tickle my fancy I'll add them too...
