Reflections

Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

Has anyone tried "Spritz" reading?

Racing words! With Spritz you read just one word at a time as it flashes briefly on the screen. Why? On the Spritz web page it says:

 

Reading is inherently time consuming because your eyes have to move from word to word and line to line. Traditional reading also consumes huge amounts of physical space on a page or screen, which limits reading effectiveness on small displays. Scrolling, pinching, and resizing a reading area doesn’t fix the problem and only frustrates people. Now, with compact text streaming from Spritz, content can be streamed one word at a time, without forcing your eyes to spend time moving around the page. 

 

 

I gave it a try at http://www.spritzinc.com/ but didn't dig it. I could keep up, just as they promised, but there's no time to ponder, or appreciate an elegant turn of phrase.  

 

A New Yorker blog titled Life is Short, Proust is Long discusses it here: Link
