 This is Scientific Americans 60 Second Science, I am Sophie Bushwick, got a minute.

 
Kindles2, Nooks and other e-readers catch flack for threatening the future of printed books. But reading itself may get a boost from the devices. For example, a study of struggling students found that the kids felt better about reading after a course in which they used Amazon Kindles. The research is in the International Journal of Applied3 Science and Technology. 
 
For two months, 199 middle-schoolers in a reading improvement class in Texas had 15 to 25 minutes every day when they were free to read on the Kindle1. In general, the students felt the device improved their reading ability. And they tended to enjoy using an e-reader.
 
They noted4 the ease of carrying multiple books in one device, and the feeling that reading was suddenly a high-tech5 21st-century activity rather than a boring waste of time. And some low-level readers who might otherwise be embarrassed to be seen with a simple book liked keeping their peers in the dark about what title they were reading. In the old days, one had to use a fake book-cover to achieve that level of secrecy6.
 
Thanks for the minute, for Scientific Americans, I am Sophie Bushwick。
