There are certain book readers (including one with the initials DH or SH, if you prefer) that moan about Kindles and other digital literary platforms. These folks (or old farts, if you prefer) believe that the best way to read a book—especially novels—is in the original printed-book-between-covers format. But if you were living in many American cities, such as Philadelphia or Pittsburgh, one of the pleasures of picking up your Sunday color sections would be finding a “Complete Novel” in a tabloid format similar to the Funny Pages (although not entirely illustrated) in long-form writing, tight columns of type, typos and all. Pretty interesting method of getting readership. But not that unusual. Even the New York Times did something similar with the special broadsheet version on August 7, 2016 of The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead.
