MY BIGGEST PROBLEM WITH MY KINDLE IS I HAVE LOST IT. REPLACE A BOOK-$25; replace a KINDLE-$200.
Okay, now which of these two graphics has the seductive power to lure you from across the room.
Which book seems distinctive, special, something you want to hold in your hand.
Kindle doesn't cut it for me. It fades into the woodwork whereas a novel, with its inviting cover, calls my name.
I have yet to finish a novel on Kindle. Matter of fact, I have gone to the library and picked up the hard copy once or twice.
I will probably eventually learn to read from a Kindle, but think about this. What kid will ever become a reader based on the experience of hearing a story read on a Kindle? It's like having sex in the machine in the Woody Allen movie SLEEPER for me. The end result may be the same but getting there is less fun and oddly similar.
