By Craig Mod:
Text printed on the best paper with no margins or unbalanced margins is vile. Or, if we’re being empathetic, sad. (For no book begins life aspiring to bad margins.) I know that sounds harsh. But a book with poorly set margins is as useful as a hammer with a one inch handle. Sure, you can pound nails, but it ain’t fun. A book with crass margins will never make a reader comfortable. Such a book feels cramped, claustrophobic. It doesn’t draw you in, certainly doesn’t make you want to spend time with the text.
That is what i hate about iBooks and Kindle as an ebook reader on iOS – can’t set the margins to your liking; I prefer Bluefire or Marvin. On Android, I like Moon Reader Pro, Aldiko and Mantano. Blio is good on margins on an iPad Air except that you can’t set the line spacing.
