I teach English at Wheaton College in Illinois and write about . . . many things. I work largely in British Modernism and in the relations between religion and literature, but have increasingly been working in the history of the book and of digital technologies. I write fairly often for the Technology channel of The Atlantic. My most recent book is called *The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction* (Oxford UP, 2011), and I am currently working on *The Book of Common Prayer: A Biography* (Princeton UP, forthcoming 2013).
