"A much bigger selection of font sizes. There is way too much of a jump between the third from largest to the next size up. They have much better font selection in the iPad Kindle app. "

"That's a great leap of logic, Chris. It does not follow that because Orwell was wrong about the publishing industry he would have been wrong to be against Amazon. There are many reasons to be "against" Amazon; pricing of ebooks is but the symbol chosen to represent all of the reasons. @Michael Perry: Good point. Unfortunately, TeleRead has become a shill for Amazon and is very quick to question the integrity of anyone who doesn't kowtow ..."

"Orwell was against cheap books because he believed they would destroy the publishing industry and he was wrong. So if Orwell would have been against Amazon, he would have been wrong to be. Publishers today are against cheap books because they believe they will destroy the publishing industry… Doesn't take too much imagination to figure out that, like Orwell, they're probably also wrong.

"Perhaps Teleread needs to consider a name change. It's becoming so partisan in this dispute that "AmazonRead" might be more apt. And I might add that, if Orwell was against cheap books--or more likely the cheapening effect of cheap books--he was against Amazon. Amazon's other tactics aside, I can't understand why a site devoted to ebook publishing defends the Scrooge of ebook retailing. It makes no sense. Amazon that pays the lowest authors royalties in ..."

""His literary executor sent a letter to the New York Times likening Amazon’s letter to the 'doublespeak' employed by the totalitarian Ministry of Truth in '1984.'" Interestingly enough, the word "doublespeak" is never used in 1984. The word was contrived as a combination of "Newspeak" and "doublethink." George Orwell condemns cheap paperbacks in his essay. To say otherwise is doublethink. "

"Hi, you can use virtually any wireless mouse like the Logitech trackball as long as you also use an OTG cable as well. I use the trackball on my note 2 and tab 3 in this manner and have had no problems so far. "

"Hi, Elizabeth--I'm always delighted to talk up Reading is Fundamental. I probably just picked up the image from the RIF site. I can't help with higher res of that particular photo. However, via Google images, you just might be able to find some alternatives. Start at http://bit.ly/1rtel8C. For now, best of luck with your McNamara project. David Rothman LibraryCity.org "

"What is required is a way of getting very small publishers and self published authors books accepted much easier into mainstream bricks and mortar bookshops. I know this would be difficult but if this occurred automatically then it would take some of the power away amazon because many people still see the goldstandard as being in large bookshops such as waterstones stores and not just available online.

"I wonder how many readers would buy this simply because they are part of the anti-Amazon crowd and want to see B&N survive as a traditional bookstore chain. Way back in 1997 I was involved in software research and typically 20% of every room would not buy anything from Msoft even though objectively one could argue they offered better features and lower prices.
