What is this thing? Reading my daily subscription from The Boomer Chronicles, I discovered something that I had not yet seen. The Kindle! An electronic reader that approximates the experience of reading a book – -but digitally. Kind of the iPod for the literati. So I headed over to read about Kindle and there are already almost 1000 reader reviews of the item…some great, some not so great…but wow. A great concept. Right now, they are running at $400 a pop…which means that like the Shuffle, the Mini, etc., within a couple of years we’ll be seeing the Mini versions going for $50 – $99.
But if I had $400 to spend right now? I’d head right over. Step aside i-Phone. Reading is back in vogue.
