Would you really want to read a whole book with two pages, increase by one? Why would you want two columns if you are only going to read one of them? And going to the setup to change it and then change it back is very cumbersome. I stand by my recommendation.

For reference, most recently this type of feature seemed handy when reading PDFs that discussed mathematical proofs. There was a fair bit of referring to previous figures / diagrams throughout.

A layer of nano-coating, to make it water-resistant, so it's safe to bring it to the beach, spa or bathtub.

@Booxtor, is this perhaps something ereader.store could offer?

It's not the whole book, it's for those sections of technical books in which it is useful to keep the former page at hand - e.g. logical theorems. You read the right one and keep the left one for reference. I think it can be a good idea.
The setup in Librera is an icon in the toolbars: center tap to show the toolbar, tap on the relevant toolbar menu icon, tap on the option, center tap for fullscreen - it's doable.

Keeping a single page as reference is a whole different feature unrelated to the page change setting we were discussing.

If the page of reference is "current-1", as it often is for analytical flowing text, the setting is equivalent to "double page, advance by one".

In principle, an extra feature is not a bad idea, supposing that someone may use it.
