With the onset of COVID-19, it has been almost impossible to access books through libraries and bookstores as they were suddenly closed. Therefore many have turned to read books through their screens.

However, studies show that reading from paper is much better than reading from screens because those who read on paper seemed to understand the material better.
Many hold more importance to the information given through printed books.
Reading from screens can lead to ‘Shallow Information Processing’, especially when one is under time constraints.

More importantly, screens can make you feel tired as the glare from the screen strains your eyes. Plus, we may get distracted and browse while reading digitally.
