The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens - By Ferris Jabr on April 11, 2013
I believe the article more than a comparison between one way of rea ding versus the other, was bias on why it is better to read on paper than on a screen. Although, by the end of the article it tells you how many magazines, writers, comics and different companies are using technology to give a more pleasant and active reading experience, it still very persuasive on why you should be reading in a paper book. I personally like technology a lot, and I don't know what I would do without my Smartphone or tablet, especially when it comes to my job and I need to do something quickly on the go. However, I do agree with the article on how it is a better experience to read from a paper book, it is true what the author describes on how they feel on the paper in your hands and the realization of knowing how much have you read and how many pages do you still need to read to finish, it is just pleasant and exciting to the reader. I am included in this myself, even knowing I am a millennial who enjoys technology, I will never leave behind a good paper book and the satisfaction of passing on page on top on the others.
I also agree with the author on how it is more efficiently to read out of a paper book. I constantly find myself trying to read an article for this class or other from the screen, or a book online, and I just can't get myself to focus as much as I would like; as much as I do when reading from a paper. In conclusion, I will continue using and experiencing technology but when it comes to read and learn I will always choose a paper book over a screen.
