Whether I am a typical reader in respect to the way I handle orientation I am not certain, but that is my personal view.
BTW. Love your books - I have read all of them.
Thanks for the input. I now have a test version with the whole map vertical (sideways), and the two halves in portrait mode, labeled as "detail." I'm trying to line up some testers on different devices to let me know how it looks. (If you read Dragon Rigger in paper, the map in question was in that book. It's not in the current ebook, however.)
And thanks for the kind words about my books! That's great to hear!
