25 participants read a story on paper whilst another 25 read the same story on a Kindle. The participants were then tested on how well the remembered different elements of the story. (33 words)

3. According to the study, what is the difference between reading on Kindle and on paper? Use your own words.

According to the study, people reading on paper can recall more ordered information than those reading on a Kindle. (20 words.)

4. Read paragraphs 6 and 7, from “She is now chairing...” (line 23) to “... interesting to explore.” (line 37)

a. People are reading more and more novels today  - FALSE. 

Lines 24-26: “research shows that the amount of time spent reading long-form texts is in decline, and due to digitization, reading is becoming more intermittent and fragmented”

b. Computers have made reading less efficient. TRUE 

Lines 26-28: “empirical evidence indicating that screen devices might negatively impact cognitive and emotional aspects of reading”

c. Researchers are now interested in testing the link between types of text and types of media. – TRUE 

Lines 31-33: “We need to provide research and evidence-based knowledge to publishers on what kind of devices (iPad, Kindle, print) should be used for what kind of content, what kinds of texts are likely to be less hampered by being read digitally, and which might require the support of paper”

d. Anne Mangen believes that we should read all kinds of novels on screen. – FALSE 

Lines 33-37: “I’m thinking it might make a difference if a novel is a page-turner or light read, when you don’t necessarily have to pay attention to every word, compared to a 500-page, more complex literary novel, something like Ulysses, which is challenging reading that really requires sustained focus. That will be very interesting to explore.”

5. According to the text, do all young people prefer digital books? Answer in about 30 words (+/- 10%)

Anne Mangen: Do you enjoy reading?

Teenager: Yes, from time to time, but I also enjoy playing on my computer, chatting with my friends and I also do a lot of sporting activities. 

AM: So when you do, what kind of things do you read? 

T: I tend to read short science fiction novels, nothing too long or anything that requires a lot of concentration. Like I said, I like to do lots of different activities. 

AM: Do you find that you spend a lot of your pocket money on these books? 

T: No, not really, I tend to use my iPad and most of the books that I get are either free or not very expensive at all. 

AM: And, finally, have you always enjoyed reading?

T: No, when I was younger, before I was given my tablet, I didn’t read at all because it was a lot more effort to find new books and then I had to carry them with me everywhere.  

(165 words)

2. Do you think books will disappear one day ? (150 mots +/- 10%)

Nowadays, almost everyone has either a mobile phone, a tablet or an electronic device for reading, and for this reason I think that it would be easy to assume that books will disappear. However, I do not agree. 

Although books are available in larger quantities on tablets and smartphones and they allow readers to carry lots of books on one device, I think that lots of people still prefer having the real book when they read. Whether this is due to the feel of the book, whether they like to know how much of the book they have left to read or whether they find a paper book more pleasing visually, readers still want to have the real thing.

I believe that digital books, through their availability and relative cheapness, have had a positive effect on books as a whole; making book shops and sellers reduce prices to be more competitive, and I think this is one of the principle reasons books will never disappear.
