I’ve never read Moby Dick. Nor have I ever read the electronic version of a full-length novel in its entirety – as a PDF, with a Kindle, an eBook reader – in any way. But I just moved into a house under construction and must leave everything packed in boxes and I’m traveling a lot and I got an iPhone, with an eBook reader called Stanza, and a wealth of open source texts at my disposal from Project Gutenberg. So I downloaded Moby Dick, as I figure I can carry it in my pocket while all of my other books are packed away.
So my question is: am I asking for trouble? Is it possible to consume epics on a 3.5″ screen?
