Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I needed to read these essays right away, so I got the Kindle version. The content is excellent (though the editor didn't proofread her introduction very carefully!), but I have several problems with the Kindle format: 1. This is a collection of essays by different authors, but the table of contents lists only the titles of the papers, with no author credits. This is weird; 2. The index, having no page number references, is completely useless. This is a significant problem for an academic publication; 3. Lists of works cited are placed at the ends of the contributions, but the only way to get there quickly is to bookmark the page they start on. This is inconvenient, given that Kindle keeps repaginating as you read (and go back and forth between references and notes). It's especially important in academic work to have easy access to references, so you can quickly identify other work of interest. 4. It's mildly annoying not to have page numbers, plus a notation indicating how many pages are left in the chapter. It's often useful to have an idea how far you have to go to finish a paper. iBooks is much better with this, but, of course, you can't read Kindle content on it. (Once again consumers suffer the ill consequences of corporate greed.) I understand that this omission is due to the fact that the variability of font size also changes pagination, but iBooks manages to handle this problem (it has fewer font choices, but I, for one, would consider that a worthwhile trade-off if forced to choose). I'd certainly think twice about buying a book of this nature (academic research) in Kindle format again. It has not been formatted with the needs of its target readership in mind.
