What's the definition of bookishness? We are joined by Jessica Pressman who is the associate professor of English and comparative literature at San Diego State University. Jessica is the author of Bookishness, Loving Books in a Digital Age. She explains how bookishness is represented in 21st century culture and how print is loved while surrounded by digital media. We discuss book-themed objects, films, Instagram, experimental writing and... mermaids.
