The screen is already small… wasting space to placing ads is a dumb idea in my opinion.

Moreover, if you are reading a book, something you’ll not need at all is an animated gif or a blinking object that distract you from what you’re reading :disagree:

We are already surrounded by annoying ads everywhere… I wonder when someone will try to put ads also in toilet paper too :rolleyes:
