      E-books and reading comprehension - do digital books make it harder to remember what you just read?

      "Do E-Books Make It Harder to Remember What You Just Read?" E-text lacks contextual cues of paper text. Oddly, the article does not tender obvious hypothesis that E-text should find ways to embed more contextual clues. Reading PDFs of articles on my iPad, for instance, seems no different in terms of remembering what I read than reading the hard copy. But I have noticed that normal webpages, especially long texts without images (or repeat images across pages), are more difficult to remember.
