IV. Conclusion

The study of digital and print artifacts and their emotional connection to a reader creates an affect of closeness and distance simultaneously. And whether it is through structure and meta-fictive narration, as with The Familiar, or through the presentation as a means to an (unsound) appeal to a pre-existing narrative, as with the Guardian article, that affect of closeness and distance—no matter its mediated form, print or digital—ultimately proves the intrinsic nature of reading as an experience.
