I see. So you are saying that reading is more than consuming text. Agreed. And you don't like in the article how paper-books are the only way to read. You say reading electronically is different though - with extra components. Do you think, in your opinion, that ereading is at least equal to preading, or potentially so, but that it can be an enhancement? Or do you think that p and e overlap, but are essentially different? Don't quite understand that from your responses. It is not completely clear if you prefer one over the other, or if you just disagree on why the article gets wrongly bashed? Maybe you agree with the article, that codex reading is better, but you don't agree on the reasons given?
Just trying to understand your point of view.
