Anything but the eyestrain

Good Lord, please no eyestrain! Alas, the screen-versus-paper debate gets more complicated:
Doctors and researchers note that in most instances, paper can offer more visual sophistication than a screen. But certain types of paper, including inexpensive newsprint and the paper in softcover books, can actually provide an inferior reading experience for our eyes than the electronic alternatives.
If only these e-versus-paper decisions didn't keep getting harder.

  1. "The paper in softcover books"? Like, ALL PAPERBACKS? The world has gone mad, I tell you.

    Hey, does anyone know if the font in e-versions of a book is always (or ever) the same as the font in the hard copy? Font nerds who don't own e-readers want to know.
