The U.S. government is offering new kinds of digital tools to help readers learn how to read books.
And they’re using a new book to test how those new tools might affect the books they read.
The “Dear Reader” is a small, handheld device that fits in a reader’s pocket and helps readers tap through book covers to learn about the books in front of them.
It also helps people learn how they can customize books to fit their own reading style.
The program has been testing the devices in the U.K. and Germany.
The U. S. Department of Agriculture and the National Science Foundation are working with publishers to get the devices onto shelves as soon as possible, and they’re also encouraging authors to use them as a way to improve their books and to test the devices.
“These devices, when they’re connected to the Internet, they’ll give you a much more personalized reading experience,” said Anne Wozniak, president of the National Association of Booksellers.
“You’re going to get to know what the book is about, what it’s about, who’s involved in the story and so forth.”
The devices are small enough to fit into a jacket pocket and are designed to make it easy to use, but they can also be used to read at any time, and some people can use them to read on the go.
The devices have been on the market for years, but this is the first time they’ve been tested in the United States.
They can be purchased at a number of online retailers, including Amazon.com, Best Buy, and Target.
