“To be honest, I haven’t met one person outside tech nerds like myself that use it [Kindle’s X-Ray feature.] I very rarely use it. I kind of go ‘Let’s see what this is about.” I think it takes away from the immersion of reading. If I’m interested in something I’ll take a look at it later on, but during the reading process I don’t really want to leave.”
