Hey! You just beat me to it! I was about to  post that same article.

I am shocked, however, that they put a major typo in one caption: They spelled "its" as "it's" in the caption that says "Sony has a campaign at Grand Central Station to promote the Sony Reader, it's digital book."

Shame on you, NYT!

You would be surprised - amazed actually as to how often I come across that misuse of the apostrophe showing possession but actually it reads as a contraction.  I spend a large part of my day researching legal briefs and legal papers published and I see it all the time.

We have two threads on the same topic, I am going to merge them together.

Thanks!

Can you see those people who are getting Sony Readers for Christmas?

"oh! I think I know what it is. This is going to be the greatest thing I've ever gotten. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy....huh?" ;D

I started at the quote from Mary Ann Van Hengel who I thought might be our own Ann Von Hagel, but alas, no.

Interesting overview, though.

Hi Pat,

Thanks for this post! I remembered we had a thread on this topic from a few days ago but it sunk down, so I merged these together. Everyone, this article is very interesting and well worth reading.

The Kindle was mentioned several times this a.m. by Elizabeth Vargas (her and her husband got them for Christmas and had questions) and I waited around to see what she would ask the tech lady but they never got around to it.

Sooooo, I emaled her and gave her this website ;)

Just was on Amazon (well, have been on all day!)...but the Danielle Steel books are now on Amazon.  I've been looking around a lot of other stuff today...so not sure when it popped on the site!
