Has anyone else noticed that it's more difficult to read the new Kindle books on a screen than an ordinary book? I remember some discussion about this in our first group and someone saying that studies showed that people do not comprehend information they read on a screen as well as information read on paper. I hadn't really noticed it until I ordered some Kindle books and found that I was having to go back and re-read things and it takes me a lot longer to finish a Kindle book than a regular book.

I've never read a Kindle book, but I've noticed that when I read a report on the computer screen, I miss things that I don't miss when I read the actual file. I don't think that human eyes were intended to stare at something as bright as a screen when they're reading.

I've never read a Kindle book either, but I know it's much more difficult to read on a screen than from a book. I've read documents several times on the computer and believe I've made all the necessary changes, but when I print the document, I find I've missed things that I just didn't see on the screen. There have been studies showing that when students are given a reading assignment on a computer screen and one in which they read from a book, they comprehend and remember much more from the book.
