The Kindle

I am a bibliophile. I love the feel of books. I love the smell of an old bookstore. I love the wealth of knowledge they represent and I have a huge personal library close to 1,000 volumes. I have resisted (and investigated) the new book readers. Until yesterday when I bought a Kindle. It was delivered to me about two hours ago. I am already convinced that it represents a revolution in reading. But not only that: it represents a revolution in research as well. With the ability to upload two hundred years worth of scholarly journals and out of print books via Google’s book search I now literally have at my fingertips, whilst traveling in many places–like Turkey, Latin America and parts of Asia–a wealth of knowledge I hitherto did not have.

If you are on the fence about buying one, let me push you off of it right now. Go to this link and get one. You will not regret it.
