There are a number of studies, that you can Google to find, consistently demonstrating diminished reading comprehension and recall for details with reading on a computer vs reading books. Reading a book, textbooks especially but also fiction, produces significantly greater reading comprehension.

I knew there was a reason I prefer physical books to online editions, not just that I'm a relic from an earlier era.
