Books Are So 15th Century


What do people think of Kindle, Amazon’s electronic reader? I don’t have one, but two people just recently have sworn to me it’s the greatest thing since indoor plumbing. They don’t just have books on it but also get their newspaper subscriptions that way, which I’d never heard of. I’m not an early adopter, preferring for other people to buy the buggy, overpriced early versions of new technology. It does seem useful, though, and it seems like it could fundamentally reshuffle the wordsmithing business, even more than it’s been reshuffled already. (And now that you mention it, yes, my book is available in a Kindle edition.)
