In the last months I’ve been reading some interesting books, but the reading experience was handicapped due to their uncomfortable format. Why do technical books have to be so big? It’s quite impossible to carry them and read on bus, or even in bed. It’s totally uncomfortable!
Anyway, in other subjects the size of the books doesn’t matter, trust me! For example, I have some Go books, and most are pocket size (and some of them really are “pocket size”)… but the most interesting thing is that they are over-filled with information. Moreover, due to their useful size, you finally spend more time with them (reading and re-reading), carrying them everywere. The reading experience is really enjoyable!
