Airplanes now with "integrated literature consoles"
ebook on plane
On my flight to Switzerland I was reading with the ebook reader. After a
while I got bored holding it in my right hand, then my left hand, then
back to the right hand... The table was too low to place it comfortably,
so I had to find another solution.
Good for me that airlines these days have "integrated literature
consoles" in the backside of your front seat. These integrated consoles
are of the "bring your own ebook reader" variety, but apart from that
they work fine. How do they work?
- Bring your own ebook reader (here my Bookeen Odyssey).
- Rotate the display to landscape mode.
- Turn the flap of the cover around and put it into the newspaper pocket
of the front seat.
- Lift your hand and "click" on the touchscreen to turn pages.
The result is a very relaxed and healthy reading posture, due to the
ergonomics of having the reader nearly at eye level and having your hands free.

Should I presume you are reading "20.000 λεύγες κάτω από τη θάλασσα"?!
Yes, indeed, I read it in French... but not continuously. I read other books and occasionally a chapter or two of "20000 lieues sous les mers" in between. The long, long descriptions are too much for me to read it in one go.
