Kindle, Kindle Everywhere

I just read that an author is offering her book free to Kindle readers. Or I guess, more properly, Kindle owners. I don’t own a Kindle and I’m not likely to pick one up anytime soon, even if I can get a free book downloaded.

Don’t get me wrong. I like books. I LOVE books. But I’m not sure I’m feeling the love of the Kindle movement. I don’t think I like the idea of reading being so techno-efficient. I like to pick up a book, thumb through the pages, get a feel for things before I commit to reading the story. Something tells me that’s not how Kindle works.

On the other hand, I’m still eating byte-sized crow about the fact that I have two blogs and a website (though technically, I only dissed the blogging). So, to Kindle or not to Kindle? That is the question.

And here’s another question: do you know a Kindle? Oddly enough, I met someone named Kindle just the other day while researching an article. An article I should be writing. So I guess the real question is: how much longer can I stall by ruminating on this whole Kindle thing?

This is what happens when I watch Andy Rooney.

  1. I’m with you. I like nothing better than to sit on a comfortable chair, pick up a book and flip through the pages. Sitting by the glow of the computer just is not the same. Kindle does nothing to kindle my interest unless we’re talking kindle as in fire, as in curing up to fireplace on a chilly winter night.Oh…..now we’re talking.
