Do people notice much difference in the reading experience?

I certainly do because there are more options. You can, for instance, scroll through pages in a pop-up window without moving from the current page and thereby changing the furthest page read. You can also access bookmarked pages in a similar way so, for instance, if you've bookmarked a page because it has details of a character or situation you can view that page in a pop-up window without moving from your current page.

For me, both those features speed up reading. As I'm also trying to improve my French Vocabulary I find the Vocabulary builder very useful. I can imagine that being a boon to parents if their children are of school age.

Thanks Denis. Is the screen/print clearer or much the same - I assume much the same as the older version?
I do however like the idea of scrolling through pages in a pop up window etc. It is a pain going backwards and forwards!

I don't see a huge difference in the quality of the "print" but the screen is certainly more evenly lit.
