...."much lower retention and minimal aid in stimulating brain health..."

This may be similar to a study done around the turn of the (other) century when it was said that driving a motor car had the same characteristics over driving a horse and buggy. ;>)

If I'm reading a good book,I don't care if it's a leather bound first edition or a 17th edition dog-eared paperback or if it's on my Kindle,I read books for their content,period.

The studies cited are suppositious in my opinion.


"The studies cited are suppositious in my opinion." says it all.

When someone has never read the study, does not know its size nor its composition, does not know the subjects tested, and does not know the methodology ... then YES, opinions formed in the absence of facts are "
suppositious " , or even presumptuous suppositions => guesses.

For example, was I quoting the 2014 Italian study on lower retention by Kindle readers versus paper book readers?

Was I quoting from the phys.org 2014 study from Stavanger University in Norway study that showed significantly lower plot retention and significantly lower plot reconstruction capabilities/disabilities for Kindle readers?
http://phys.org/news/2014-08-readers-absorb-kindle.html

or ... Was I quoting the 2013 study of reading comprehension of Norwegian 10th-graders test results between those who read printed text versus reading PDF files on a computer screen, (followed by comprehension tests), where researchers found that "students who read texts in print scored significantly better on the reading comprehension test than students who read the texts digitally".

or ... Was I quoting results from the March 2015. US National Academy of Sciences study by Dr. Robert Freidland who found that reading printed books helped prevent Alzheimers versus Kindle reading ... and that TV watching and other similar mind-candy electronic-screen driven stimulations seem to actually "contribute to Alzheimers" .

Focus on the 2015 NAS study results that found elderly Americans who read books regularly are 2 times less likely to have Alzheimers ...


or ... Was I quoting from the 2001 National Academy of Sciences findings of reading's affects on Alzheimers ?

========================

So, CB ...

Just which study was I quoting from above, that you criticize ?

Which study or studies were you "suppositious " that are just conjecture and suppositions by the researchers ?

.
Some people choose to read... Some choose books as more enjoyable and more effective alternatives to crumbling old-age.
