And it is good. I broke down and bought a Kindle the other day and it just showed up. I have to say, I really like it. I knew it was going to be compact and sleek, but I really am amazed at how well crafted the device is. Also in the exceeding expectations department, I was dumbfounded by how easy the ordering/delivery of the book was. Stunning.
I know there is nothing new here, so at the request of a friend of mine, I’ll be doing some speed trials with this. You may have gathered that I read a lot. I also read very fast, at least I did on paper. So I’ve selected a business book – Drive by Daniel Pink, a fiction book – First Lord’s Fury by Jim Butcher, and a technical book – Beginning Ruby by Peter Cooper. These should give me the gamut as far as how reading on the Kindle stacks up versus paper for me. More to follow.
