The substance of text ...

... A book’s material condition.

There are books I still have that I can pick up and smell and be vividly reminded of the time when I first read them. One will never have such an experience reading a Kindle. Which doesn't mean one may not have a great experience reading something on a Kindle that will stay with you forever. But other factors will have to decorate the memory.
