Interesting story about a novel use of mobile phones. It also has some great advantages.
OK, books are portable, but they can be bulky and heavy. A mobile phone fits in pockets and the slimmest of hand bags.
2. The IT Crowd
Reading a novel on a bus or in some other public arena makes you stick out like a geeky loner. Reading a novel on a mobile phone makes you fit in with the trendy texters and/or mobile gamers.
3. Enjoy the Silence
Reading’s a quiet activity: no irritating beeps, ringtones, game noise and over-loud conversation for people nearby. And no irritating pacing up and down that some mobile users seem to think will enhance reception.
It can be adapted to poetry. For this reason alone it gets my thumbs up.
