I loved that quote. I'm also looking forward to carting it along with me to the bookstore. I love bookstores, but I find that I not so infrequently purchase books I've already read. I hope those days will be rare to non-existent in the Kindle world (except for perhaps the occasional DTB read) as I would search the interesting book I find in the bookstore on Amazon and send a free sample. I'm also hoping that queue can be my to-read list.Vegas_Asian said:She made a good point about the SkyMall magazine!
Unless she knows something we don't, that was bad journalism.LKE said:Did you notice she said the Kindle 2.0 will be announced February 9?
Like many others, I have a large SD card(16GB in my case) and that translates into thousands of books. More than I'll probably ever read in my remaining life time.ProfCrash said:She is off on the number of books that can be held with expandable memory. She said a few hundred, that should be a few thousand. And I am sick of the stupid buttons argument. It is easy to hold. You figure it out quickly.
The rest of the report is wonderful. The ease of downloading books, the greatness of carrying thousands of books in something the size of a paper back, carrying libraries, and how great it is to read. They even discuss why it is not backlit, kind of. Instead of getting into the whole eye strain thing they say it feels more natural to read a book with a light on.
Not a bad report and plenty of publicity for the Kindle. Which is a good thing.
