Kindle is the ideal vessel for book shopping before going to the used bookstore and for reading free books. Buying a new book in kindle, however, makes absolutely no sense. All one really buys is a temporary right to read a book, which makes little in the way of sense.


  1. I download best sellers when I am traveling, I have noticed that when I download other kinds of books I usually regret it as they are hard to flip through in digital form and you can't loan them to other people.

  2. Exactly. The nice feature is the ease of taking the books with one but the rest of the stuff is makes the full ownership of a book impossible, which fine for Stephan King but kind of sucks for Machiavelli.
