Yup, me too. I love me some printed books. There’s a real art to formatting the inside of a book for readability. Weird stuff the average bear doesn’t know.

Here’s a for example. Self published authors often use narrow margins because it makes the page count lower, which reduces the cost of the book. But it comes at a price — the book becomes harder to read.

Print the same book with half inch margins and one inch margins, and people will tell you the book with bigger margins is easier to read.

White space is magic. For fiction, separating bits with asterisks or a symbol creates breathing space. For non-fiction, subheads work in print too.

I am rambling again. You always bring such kindness. Thanks for that. ❤
