Abstract/Description: This thesis is concerned with the possible effects of e-books on reading from a socio-historical perspective and a neurological perspective. It looks at how reading habits change due to e-books and what that means for society. It also looks at what experts are currently saying about how e-books might affect human brains and the validity of these concerns. In addition, conclusions of areas of research to focus on are suggested. A survey about the reading habits of FSU students was taken. These results were incorporated to track FSU trends compared to national averages.
