Editor’s Note: I saw the link to this peer-reviewed paper in Rich Adin’s article below. I found it absolutely fascinating and so I thought I reprint it for you in full as it was published under a Creative Commons license. It is from First Monday, a peer-reviewed journal on the internet.  The original paper is here.

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.
