Books on the Web: Books v. e-Books
Is there a difference in the way the brain takes in or absorbs information when it is presented electronically versus on paper? Does the reading experience change, from retention to comprehension, depending on the medium?
Does the brain like e-books?
Do I like e-books? No, not really. I like the feel of the page in my hands, the smell of the book, the sound of pages turning. Reading is not just about the words on the page, and the images in your head: it is a sensuality that you don't get from a computer.
