People just go the extra mile and list it as more hints toward a tablet device with a larger screen which would be better suited to reading than the tiny iPhone screen.
Odd as it sounds, despite using a number of screen sizes, I almost always come back to preferring the iPhone screen size, in portrait mode, because it reminds me of reading a continuous newspaper article in column layout. And I wouldn't want a pocket reader to be any bigger.

That said I would like an Apple-ized tablet device for home and at the office for a variety of reasons, and definitely would use it for book reading at least some of the time.
