Five Reasons

I think there are five reasons why we’ve never enjoyed reading books on our computers:

  1. The distance between reader and the text is too large
  2. Vertical orientation is unnatural for book consumption
  3. Using a mouse to manipulate position in a book is sterile
  4. Computer screens aren’t technically optimized for text
  5. Desktop OSes aren’t optimized for concentration
