What is your preference--screens or pages?

Is the printed page going to be obsolete in the future?  Think of all the screens you presently read.  Are screens replacing pages?

 

The National Literary Trust studied almost 35,000 eight- to 16-year-olds in the UK recently, and the survey results are included in the following article from the BBC News Education and Family--"Young people 'prefer to read on screen'"--by Sean Coughlan.

 

Does it surprise you that this is a generation of computer screen readers as opposed to readers of books and magazines?  What are the positives and negatives for these young people who prefer reading a screen?
