Stanza (iTunes Store) the application that turns the iPhone and iPod Touch into an excellent book reading device, has turned up at number 10 in Wired’s end of year roundup for iPhone applications (via Lifehacker). I’ve read several books this way so far and recommend the experience. It’s surprisingly comfortable and easy. It’s the time of year for rash predictions and for the record mine is that e-readers of one kind or another will be the big story in publishing this year. Dead tree books are not going away, but there is no longer any practical reason (other than price) not to read on an electronic device.
