I wonder if activities, before reading such as tv watching, effect the out come of this study.

That's why I still prefer my non-back lit e-ink Nook.

Artificial light being bad for your sleeping patterns is not a new concept. Obviously backlit eReaders are not an exception.

Apparently, there are printed versions of e-books on paper... Books, as they're called, make for better bedtime reading.

What witchcraft do you speak of?

I tried printing selfmade published works before from online, it was more effort than it was worth. Especially when it comes to archiving. Even with a laser printer, fanfiction can be costly to put on paper if you happen to go that route.

Honest question:

When was the last time you went to a bookstore or a library?

The libraries in my area have an excellent selection of ebooks & magazines. However, I do have to actually visit them in person to sample their superb collection of music cd's.
