Imagine the following test:

Take x children, aged 0. Never ever give them a book made from paper, but only ereader devices. Tablets, e-ink readers, any form as long as it's not paper.

Take a second group, also consisting of x children, aged 0. Never give them an ereader device, but only paper books. Hardcovers, soft covers, paperbacks, any form as long as it's not electronic.


Now, once they've turned 18, switch book reading methods. Then, when they're 20, ask them which format they prefer...
Quite probably they might say that it is easier for their eyes.
