ok so i work as an IT tech so iam looking at computer screens for 9 hours a day, then i get home and normally on the computer. Checking emails and everything else with sites, ebay ect.... So i decided to take up reading to help relax. So instead of doing my normal routine of coming home from work then going straight to the computer or tv, i wanted to kind of get away a bit from looking at it. Hence why i have read some really good books, i noticed not only does it relax me but helps greatly with going to sleep. Note* constantly looking at computer screens/tv strains my eyes and can give he a headache. Since i started reading it has HELPED ALOT. I wonder since the kindle is a computer screen would it be counter productive to use a kindle instead of reading paper back/hardcover books?
