Online vs. Print Reading Habits

Who reaches the end of more stories: those thumbing through a newspaper or magazine, or those staring at a shimmering 1024x768 pixel LCD? Apparently, we'd rather singe our eyes with a computer screen than enjoy the crisp, traditional look of ink on paper.

I have two guesses as to why this is true. Web stories tend to be shorter than print, and through smart searching, we can find the articles we actually want to finish. As for me, I still love print!
