The operation of e-readers is profoundly unlike actually reading a book.
Today’s invention offers a way to enhance the experience a little -avoiding all that metaphor-breaking button pressing.
Placing the e-reader on a flat surface and opening the front cover (shown as blue), advances the page. Closing the cover and opening it again, repeats the process.
Turning the e-reader over and opening the back cover, attached to the device (red) allows the reader to move back one page.
This is somewhat like the forwards and backwards page flicking that can occur with a regular book.
