This article describes the experiment investigating the issue of reading efficiency in blended learning context. The study aimed to find out whether reading efficiency is higher when reading from a printed material or from a computer screen and if the effectiveness of reading depends on the attitude towards a text presentation format. The research aimed to inform the teachers that the blended component introduced into the learning English not only does not impede the learning process but improves it by influencing the attitude. The effectiveness of reading was measured in the terms of recall and comprehension of the texts presented in two different modes. The findings show that there is no significant difference as far as recall results are concerned when two delivery modes are applied though the experiment participants obtain higher comprehension results while they deal with electronic texts. The attitude study showed that the participants seemingly born as digital natives prefer reading from a printed material to reading from a computer screen.
