It would be so difficult to use buttons on the bottom to turn a page, I would need to put my left hand on the book to balance it. Even the side page turn buttons require a pressure that some times unbalances the reader.
I also read rather fast with a large font so it is a constant tap, Maybe slower page turners using 2 hands do it easier with buttons.
Can somebody who uses buttons tell me where it is easier. I must be missing something.
I'm not one of the button fanatics but I do miss the home button at least on my 650. It's so nice just to hit the home button rather than having to touch the screen and then touch the home button.
