    you’re able to jump to the next unread paragraph of a book you put down the night before without any effort? Our brains are well-trained to jump back into the narrative threat a book offers. There’s another thing at work here. Previously, we would only rarely have considered picking up a book to read for short bursts. But the cell phone naturally lends itself to that.
