…they’re just digital.
And were it not for the ridiculous price tag of $400, I would probably be getting a Kindle, Amazon’s new wireless reading device, which some are dubbing "the iPod of reading".
It weighs less than a paperback, but on it you can read any digital book (88,000 currently available). You can also subscribe to top U.S. newspapers and weekly magazines which are auto-delievered. Blogs too. It holds up to 200 books.
Best of all, it uses "electronic ink", which is a fancy way of saying there is no backlight, and therefore, no eyestrain.
Not too shabby. Newsweek does a mammoth story on Kindle (shorter version: they love it).
Now all that need is a text-to-speech converter, and I’m in heaven.
