(Newser) – People read faster with old-fashioned books than they do with Kindles or iPads, a new study says. Compared to print readers, iPad users finished 6.2% slower and Kindle readers 10.7% slower, reports Mashable. (They read Hemingway short stories.) Reader satisfaction was about the same, however, and the product consultant group that conducted the study pronounced the findings "promising for the future of e-readers and tablet computers."
