Interesting – and short, so perfectly readable onscreen – piece on the difference between screen-reading and page-reading from The Boston Globe.

(I'm currently reading Alone in Berlin by Hans Fallada which would not be the same experience for me on a screen. Immersive, thrilling, I'm going through it with a physical sense of progress – and "ownership" – which, because of the book's intensity, is one additional aspect of reading it which would be lost on screen.)
