Do our brains like E-books


An extremely interesting and stimulating article by Lane Wallace at The Atlantic on how the use of devices such as Kindle might impact the way we and future generations use ‘books’ and other ‘print media’, as opposed to the way we do now.

I read a lot of material on the internet, but at the same time I still like to read a book or magazine in the old fashioned manner. I agree with the author of the article that browsing a print publication will often occasion instances where you come across an item which you might well miss in the electronic edition, and that is if the item makes it into the ‘e’ version.

An article well worth reading and thinking about.
