Papyrophobia. Fear of paper?

I'm guessing you meant to say that your pulse stayed the same when you read on the web.

Maybe you had bad experiences with reading for school and paper books cause you to recall this?

With the advent of ereaders it has become more commonplace to see shorter books (50k or under) which take a shorter time to read so in some ways I guess it may be true that you can read something faster. Also the ereader is a lot lighter weight to hold than a traditional paper book may be, not to mention you don't have to deal with a stiff spine like with paper, but there are some very good books (some in ebook format) that are longer as well. And if you really get into a story hrs can pass while you are turning pages, paper or electronic and before you know it you may have read a fairly long book.

Do physical books hurt your eyes to the same extent that e-books do?

Why or why not?

Paper books hurt my eyes more than ebooks. The font size adjustment on them is non-existent and even using my single vision reading glasses does not make reading a pbook comfortable. I won't get into the weight and inability to switch to a new book without hunting it down inthe stacks. I will admit that not that many people have 1500+ hardcovers and ghod alone knows how many paperbacks in their personal library though I have been weeding out the unsigned copies when I purchase an ebook version.
