Reading Comprehension Reader factors address the aspects thatthe readers bring to the readingexperience such as backgroundknowledge, engagement with text, andstrategies used while reading. Text factors represent the author’scontributions to the reading experienceincluding the author’s ideas, organizationof ideas, and the words used to expressthose ideas.(Tompkins, 2010)

I read Frindle on my iPhone. I liked itbecause I always have my phone withme, therefore, I always had the bookwith me! I also enjoyed how you couldchange the colors, font size, or theway you read (scroll or book style). Iread a lot more as an ebook! Iusually am not very motivated toread, but this was different. I LOVE IT! Ihave never read an e-book before, butmy iBooks library is quickly fillingup; I have read two ebooks in recordtime! I think this has encouraged me toread more.
I finished the book faster because Iread while waiting in lines, hangingout with friends, etc. I am not asagainst it as I once was.Convenience is nice, but it is adouble-edged sword. It makes usfrustrated when we cant getsomething right away anddissatisfied with simple joys.Maybe I am reading too far into it.
