About

A Reading Revolution -- The Amazon Kindle!


The future of reading is not what we think it might be.....Read what the Amazon founder thinks!

I recently got the Amazon kindle (it is finally offered again -the initial offering sold out in just 5 hours!) and I'm amazed! I'm usually a big big sceptic but since reading some reviews and articles on this amazing ebook reader, I decided to take the plunge! This is the future!

Besides, I'm saving trees and energy and I also can read other books with it (download through usb cable from my computer, non Amazon titles).

Our bookstore gives you a great discount but the great thing is its portability and the low cost of books when ordered on the go and downloaded WITHOUT an internet connection! So versatile. Once more publishers climb onboard and the selection grows, this will just take off!

You can read anywhere and I think this would be a great tool for learners, especially if Amazon starts to offer more options like internal audio. Here are the product specs.

Product Details

Varnika,

Good point! I have been hoping to find time today to do a counterpoint blog post but alas, it will have to wait. I've had a post inside me for years about the necessity and value of "the library" - be it electronic or paper......

I still think that if everyone had a device that could store and transfer books instantly, we'd save so much...all other things considered. It only takes 200 books to make 1 tree! Then the energy etc....

But agree, our incessant computer upgrading, need for more and newer, is just too much and not conducive to being any where near "earth friendly" . I try....I really do.... but can always try harder and appreciate any reminder of such...

Cheers,

David

I fell in love with the thing last year and would have ordered one immediately if I thought it would work in Korea. I thought it needed the Sprint network to down load books from anywhere.
