Today, Amazon announced the imminent launch of its newest endeavor, Kindle Worlds, a publishing platform for fanfiction. When I read the announcement, I was horrified, then angry, then sad. I want to take a moment to explain why this is such a tragedy.
I was browsing some fic here on tumblr, looking through everyone’s layouts, and thinking to myself, “I don’t know how anyone reads fic without Readability.” It occurred to me then that possibly many of you are reading without it because you don’t know it exists.
Here’s an example of what it does. Say this is what the fic looks like before:
I click on my Readability bookmark right there and it converts the page to become:
And say you’re not a fan of white on black and zoomed for a blind person, which are just my personal settings, all the options are in a column on the left for you to experiment with:
Be sure to give Readability a look and maybe you can save yourself some eyestrain and finally be able to read from sites you thought were lost to you.
For all readers in the world
I hate it when an author suddenly removes a good story and disappears without a trace for no fucking reason or warning and there’s no way to find that story again… =______=
It’s even worse when the entire fandom is bursting with terrible fanfics and that story was one of the VERY few that I liked.
