EXACTLY. Contrast improves in brighter light for an e-ink display because it's reflective. An lcd display may look 'sharper' than e-ink in so-so light, but for extensive reading, an lcd is NOT easier on the eyes. No way. It may seem 'clearer' when looking at the screens side-by-side, but I use my e-ink device for reading novels, hours at a time. If I had to do this on an lcd, I'd sooner tear my eyeballs out.
