I do have a stand, but I tend to read on the couch.

Patient, "Doctor! My arm hurts when I hold it up this way."
Doctor, "Put your arm down."
Unfortunately, when your thumb is in that "generous" band, it doesn't take much to hit the edge of the screen and flip 6 pages back. In any other app, I can hold the device and not have actions performed without intention.
I hope they enable some type of option to disable the feature, not just flip between forward and backwards.
