I have been using the Amazon Kindle for a few months. And on this trip in the US it has been particularly useful on the long flights that I’ve needed to take. I like reading fiction on it more than non-fiction. I download a couple of books in advance and then read them on long journeys like this trip. It puts one in a different world for some time — after I am done with my business thinking and cannot sleep!
I just bought a book online from Amazn — and it ‘whispered’ its way to the Kindle in seconds. Quite an experience! And a glimpse of what the magic of mobile can do. (The Kindle has a built-in CDMA network connection.)
Some of the fiction books I have read recently are:
- Final Theory: A Novel by Mark Alpert
- Moscow Rules by Daniel Silva
- The Whole Truth by David Baldacci
Two I am planning to read soon are:
- – Rules of Deception by Christopher Reich
- – The Last Patriot by Brad Thor
Overall, I like the Kindle very much. So should happen, one doesn’t think too much about the electronics of book reading, but is lost in the world the author creates.
