I consider myself pretty much down with the digital. At work, I am strictly paperless and I’m that pain who insists on colleagues being the same. So how come when I am reading for my course I print everything? I don’t write notes on the paper, I type them, there is no need for me to print but I think there is a comfort blanket in having them. I used to have the excuse that I printed on purple paper and that made it easier for me to read but I have purple glasses for reading now so that’s not a viable excuse.
To make me even more of a weirdo, I keep all my reading digitally too using paperpile. Everything is stored neatly in folders so I can access things, for example, block 1. BUT….. I have a shelf at home where I do the exact same thing with my paper copies, I store them in folders.

What is wrong with me? Am I less digitally native than I first thought? Is it just a comfort blanket? I don’t agree that it’s always easier to read a paper copy than a digital copy in fact sometimes it’s better to read on screen cause I can change the zoom.
