    I read genre fiction--mysteries--and I also read fiction for English lit classes.

    I have found that I can read the work much more closely when I have a printed book than when I'm using an e-book. Maybe my brain processes it differently. Maybe it is just a simple thing, that I can flip back and forth between sections more easily with a printed book.

    I'm not reading mysteries for the experience of close reading and analysis. I thoroughly enjoy mysteries, but for different reasons than literary fiction.

    So, yes, for me, e-books are fine for some kinds of fiction and not as good for others.
