    The Guardian article raises some questions. It states that reading started 6000 years ago, and acts as if everyone then learned to read. Whereas i think it’s more widely believed that only a small part of any population learned to read until the last 150-200 years ago. So how widely spread was this “new circuit in our species’ brain” really? The other thing I always wonder about those stories about how people who read electronically don’t remember things as well, is how much practice those people have with the online reading that they’re asked to do. When I first started reading on a Kindle it was very distracting and counter-intuitive. Now, I’m very comfortable with it and the mechanics of it disappear, the way that turning the pages of a physical book had become automatic many years/decades ago. I would be interested to know if that data is collected as part of the study.
