All the eReader apps have a margin. There is plenty of space to hang on without covering any text.
In fact, text never loads to the very edge of the page in any app, not only the eReaders, so there is always some empty space next to the bezel. Plus the mini is so thin and light that you don't need much to hang onto, mostly I hold it in my palm with my thumb slightly wrapped around the left edge, adding my little finger hooked on the bottom edge.
