What does literature offer an individual? Literature offers an individual a great deal of things. To name a few, it gives a person the opportunity to expand their knowledge, experience life through the lens of the story, and gives one a break from reality. As stated in our textbook, “Through literature, we can explore human experiences deeply and search for meaning. It opens new worlds, presents new ideas, and stimulates personal change” (Glugston, R.W. 2014, ch.2.3) How has the importance of reading changed from earlier eras (pre-digital/audio/visual media) to our present day? I personally do not think that the importance of reading has changed from earlier eras and present day. However, internet, television, tablets, and mobile phones have become extremely pervasive in society today thus require reading skills. Earlier eras did not have these type of technologies so reading skills were not as necessary as they are now.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
