        NTA but what's there to explain? I've spent a lifetime behind a computer and I still wouldn't want to focus on prose, word usage or text flow on a monitor or phone screen. It'll also induce the kind of myopia you don't get by sticking to e-ink or paper.

            if you're not FRO-ZEN in your spot focusing on words and their meaning and picturing through this high vibratory state all images as were conjured by the writer and reshaped through your experience and holonomic visions you're not really reading tbh

          Isn’t that a psychological barrier more than anything? I could have understood if you said yes to paper and no to all forms of screen reading. But if you’re putting e-ink and paper together, that tells you it’s psychological. Because E-ink is closer to a regular display than it is to a paper

            E-ink isn't backlit and isn't blasting your brain with 240 images per second.

            It is as much of a damage to your eyes as regular screens I have read.

            Have you used one before? It's not just a screen. The reason the technology isn't everywhere is due to low refresh rates (which slump to 0 unless prompted otherwise), it just puts some black globs where a program tells it to and then pauses until you prompt it to put more black globs somewhere else. You can have backlit e-ink screens but they're not really beaming color at absurd frequencies right into your eyes either. Or using blue light emitting diodes. Or LEDs at all.

            Ok. Does it have the same retention as paper in your experience? I read a study a few years ago that people reading on displays retained much worse than paper. But don’t remember if it was e-ink or regular displays

            I can only vouch for old ones without backlights or anything but yeah they're about the same. The actual tactile experience of sifting through a book or knowing where in the tome certain things are is lost (and this helps your retention) but the actual act of reading is just as comfortable.

            The actual problem with staring at a screen is the same issue with staring a book, long periods spent staring at things a fixed distance away from your face means the muscles in your eyes do nothing, they are not adjusting the pupil to let in the correct amount of light or shaping the cornea to focus what it sees, your eyes just sit there. Like any muscles which regularly get neglected for long periods they become less good at the job they are supposed to do and become slow are reacting. Your eyes are actually more active in sleep than they are when reading or staring at a screen.

            So technically people start to retain less for paper books as well with extended reading?

            Retaining less has nothing to do with the eye issues, more about fatigue and what you are used too. The studies I have seen regarding retention and comprehension have been poorly done to say the least, one that often gets posted here uses people who had never used an ereader but had been reading regularly for decades, all they really proved was that people retain less when they suddenly have to think about the act and are unable to just let muscle memory do its thing.

            It's just one of those pathetic games some people play with themselves so they can feel proactive about their life and avoid facing up to the fact that they spend 16 hours a day staring at screens.

    I use my phone for math textbooks and academic articles but I don't really consider that reading. Still, bless the KOReader devs.

    Nothing wrong with reading through a few pages of Gulag Archipelago on your phone while in line for a coffee

    For some reason I kinda find it easiest to read on a computer screen. Big text, and the light makes it clearer and keeps me awake and focused, somehow.
