Following his marvellous essay that I blogged here as The Future of Books? Craig Mod’s new essay considers the practicalities of e-reader design. Comparing iBooks and Kindle.app he simply asks “which one of these would you rather read with?” Here’s an image of the two with minimal chrome:

Typography, functionality, and the possible benefits offered by networking—aggregating data from reader’s behaviours—are also discussed.

Another excellent essay from Mod: go and read it. Even the comments are worth a look…
