I debated back and forth on whether or not I should get one because I have concerns with so much digital culture. Of course there is a lot that can be affirmed about the technology, too.
At the end of day one, I predict that I will enjoy the device very much. In celebration of purchasing the Kindle I want to pass along two bits of digital irony:
- The very first book I plan to read on my Kindle is entitled You are Not a Gadget by Jaron Lanier. I know nothing about the book except the title and it caught my attention one day parousing Barnes and Noble. I have some thoughts stewing in my mind that I hope this book might shed light on. And then maybe one day I will share them on my blog.
- I find it incredibly humorous that there is a Kindle version of a book entitled Bookbinding and the Care of Books: A Handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders & Librarians
