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.
I really do not have an opinion other than that e-reading and p-reading is a bit different but can both be activities on the level that the article author considered p-reading to be. And the point that I tried to make here was that there exists activities that contains reading text that do not achieve that level so the argument that "reading is reading" proposed in this thread is a broken argument argument.
