… Book Review: ‘Words Onscreen’ by Naomi S. Baron - WSJ. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)
I presume reading by means of cuneiform tablets is different from reading by means of papyrus scrolls (to say nothing of heavier). And reading an illuminated manuscript is certainly different from reading a printed book. But can it be all that different? I bounce back and forth between printed text and electronic text and really don't notice much of a difference.
