I just finished the first book I’ve read on my iPhone. I used the free Kindle reader app. I read The Reader by Bernhard Schlink.
I loved the experience. It was a relief to my often achy hands and thumbs to not have a heavy book to hold. The screen resolution is so crisp that I had no problem seeing it, even with my crap-for-eyes.
It went amazingly fast. The line length is so short than you can almost read down the page line by line without having to refocus your eyes again and again to scan across the lines. It’s speed reading without even trying.
I have a feeling that I’ll be buying all books that are available for Kindle in this way from now on.
