Has anyone ever had a digital copy of a textbook before? Did you find it harder to read it compared to a printed textbook? In my experience, I find it way easier on my eyes to read on paper. I get headaches if I have to read a lot of text on a computer screen.

  1. I have to print pages out a lot of the time if it is on the computer screen because it gives me head aches. I am fine with my kindle because it isn’t backlit.
