Most apps (including the Kindle with the latest update) allows you to turn pages with a single tap. With Stanza, a tap on the left side of the screen goes to the previous page and a tap on the right to the next page. The small screen actually makes single-handed operation (using either hand) possible since your thumb wouldn't need to travel far to switch pages.
I made an extremely simple mock-up of what I'd like in a reader. Basically, I want both left and right sides to have next/previous buttons since I tend to switch hands while reading. It's not really the most ideal mock-up and I didn't include any other buttons. Also, I think I should have made the sides a little bit wider so they're easier to grasp.
