Abstract

This paper focuses on changing reading characteristics and presents a
study among a group of expert readers. Considering technological
bases of reading and applying corporeal and material perspectives,
this study examines manners in which proficient readers handle
printed and digital texts, attempting to explain differences in
digital and paper-based reading. Based on findings, this paper
reflects on how long-form text can be productively transferred into
the digital reading space.
