The article discusses the role of the Institute for the Future of the Book (IF) in addressing the benefit of digital networks to reading and authorship in the U.S. It explains an online book club project created by IF founder Bob Stein in which seven women were chosen to read and make comments on "The Golden Notebook," by Doris Lessing using the CommentPress open-source software. Stein reportedly obtained a fund worth 24,292 U.S. dollars from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for digital publishing programs that involve Internet.
