Started Frederick Grinnell’s Everyday Practice of Science: Where Intuition and Passion Meet Objectivity and Logic (2009) today—via the Kindle app on the iPad, that is, on Téo.

And, tada!, I discovered there’s a white-text-on-black-background option that I find much easier to peruse that the usual black-on-white presentation!

    Interesting about the white-on-black ebook format. Over the years, a lot of people have disparaged white-on-black but I have read about a study that found that for low-vision folks, a black background with a large yellow font was easier to read than black-on-white. (Not that you have low vision, just thought it was interesting.)
