Today I opened "The Curious Case of Benjiman Button" by F. Scott Fitzgerald for the first time on my iphone. I had downloaded this from BeamItDown via the app store incase I was ever stuck without a book.
Instantly, I became an ereading convert. I had never thought I would like to read books this way. The text on this app is clear and you can scroll by hand or have it move teleprompter style. It made me realise how often I normally lose my place on a page. Apparently, you can change the font and page colour too, but it seemed perfect to me.
Is this the future of books? I love that if I read them this way they could cost less. However, I imagined them costing a small fraction of the price, so I could buy ten for the price of one and this is not the case with books still under copywrite. And, I often turn to a book when my iphone needs charging. I'll finish this short story and keep you updated when I try reading a larger one.
