USA Today has a long article surveying the reasons why people are moving from paper books to the Kindle. With the unabridged H.P. Lovecraft biography on the way to me (2 volumes, “enormously heavy” according to the forums), I can appreciate the weight issue. The Kindle just feels the right weight in the hand.
“In Pearl River, N.Y., Kathy Miscioscio, 58, a marketing consultant, loves her local library’s digital download center, which saves trips to and from the library”
Nice idea. I might be asking my local library if they offer that. Hey, and wouldn’t it be great if the British Library would accept Kindle ebooks as deposit copies, by email?
