In many print books, such as the book I'm validating now, chapters do begin in the middle of the page, though I don't see any logical reason for it. I also don't see a reason why chapters have to begin on an odd-numbered, or right-hand (facing the reader) page, requiring a blank page preceding it. This is as annoying to the sighted reader as it probably is to a blind reader--and a waste of paper.
