(Pre-hyperlink) hyperlinked reading

I’ve always been that person who prefers non-fiction reference books, skim reads fiction, jumps chapters, skips to the end to confirm plot assumptions, and seldom finishes an entire book (it has to be pretty exceptional!) ever since a young age. I love reading on a computer screen, opening hyperlink tabs, using ‘find word’ searches, and find the linearity and inflexibility of paper oppressive. I also have a very low threshold for boredom.

It’s interesting how opinions differ on the format of text. Despite the ‘digital age’, we are by no means all going ‘native’ (yet!)
