I'm Weston, a moderator of a writing fourm which hosts an online writing magazine [URL=http://shortstory.us.com/]http://shortstory.us.com/ [/url] [URL=http://forum.shortstory.us.com/]http://forum.shortstory.us.com/ [/url]. When a topic on print publications always being around came up, our admin mentioned this Kindle machine. Of course I, being who I am, assumed ebooks remained in the BETA stage with Stephen King tossing grouped shorts online to be downloaded to a seventeen dollar printer. Seems I'm out of the electronic book circle so to speak. So I am here to learn about the Kindle (and the hated question...when is the next generation going to be released...and can it have a wacom touch screen like the iLiad from iRex?), and to make a few friends along the way!
