War and Peace and Carpal Tunnel
Posted by: Keir Graff

And more on the mind-boggling notionĀ of reading books on cell phones. From the Chicago Tribune (“Cell phones’ latest plot twist,” by the delightfully named Stevenson Swanson, if that is his real name):

With their small screens, cell phones might not spring to mind as a suitable medium for reading lengthy stretches of text. And a much-ballyhooed e-book revolution during the dot-com era in the late 1990s and early 2000s fizzled, leading many in publishing to doubt whether books would ever escape the bounds of paper.

But that hasn’t stopped such publishers as Houghton Mifflin, Simon & Schuster and Avalon Travel from making deals with specialty firms to produce mobile versions of some of their titles.
