Abstract

The chapter will outline immersion in concrete reading practices. By investigating audio reading and web based digital literary reading experiences the chapter points to a need for investigating the distribution of immersion as media specific aspects of reading experiences as they make us take part in the literary atmospheres under new conditions. The argument will be that a reader will be immersed in a story on different conditions whether reading an audiobook, a webbased literary interface or a printed book.
