The Kindle is now $139. The iPad has burrowed its way enough into our culture already that it appears in the wordpress spell check dictionary. Sony just came out with released new versions of its e-readers. Barnes and Noble also has…uh…done something with its…um…Nook? I had no idea the market for e-readers had quite so many horses.
I’ve seen more and more iPads and other e-readers every day on the rails/tires of Muni (or so I think). As someone who loves, and is reluctant to abandon, the software stability of analog paperbacks, is it finally time for me to switch? And if so, which one?
I tend to only read one book at a time, so I’m not sure if the ability to store 1,300 books is really all that appealing to me.
Does anyone else out there have one that they love/hate? Should I just bow to the coolness and conspicuous consumption appeal of the iPad, or is the much cheaper Kindle actually a better fit? Are you scared that someone will swipe it from you on Muni?
