Reading engages only the mind - not even vision as a sensory input, really. The full range of effects that can engage vision, hearing, touch (or other physical effects) are powerful additions. Taste and smell are not yet added, but smell is pretty much a given; I'm not sure about taste.
The basic idea behind movies 'persistance of vision' hasn't changed since the 1st movies back in the 1890's though the special effects have improved somewhat. Likewise reading is reading no matter what the media (paper, e-ink, etc). At least that's my own opinion.
