I’ve always found reading, in the sense of my Petroleum Engineering major, as something that happens everyday. Whether hard copy or digital, there are always things that I am reading. Reports from wells, any one of the hundreds of data sheets from well tests, daily projects, emails, informational articles and magazines. Reading has always been something you HAVE to do in life, you have to know how to read to survive alone in the world, and most definitely to be successful.
Reading within my major is changing though, everything is transferring into the digital world. Reports that used to be filed out by hand or even printed for hard copy, are all being programmed and saved online. Sharing is through email, powerpoint, twitter, google+, ext. For what I think are the right reasons and a good thing, the business world is going digital and on its way to connecting the world.
