With the announcement that Barnes and Noble is attempting to grab some of Amazon’s e-reader market share with their “Nook,” a competitor to the Kindle, I thought I’d dig up some bookworms with Kindles in their natural environments. I don’t have one myself, but there is something rather appealing about having something so thin to carry around and pull out on the subway. I’ve been lugging around a hardback copy of The Year of the Flood for a week.
Here we have someone reading a Kindle in a Barnes and Noble. With the addition of the B&N Starbucks, feels like there’s branding from all sides… I guess they’re hoping it’ll be replaced with a shiny new Nook soon. – rkleine (CC)
A somewhat terrifying notion. Imagine your e-reader sneaking around, gobbling up your books at night. Of course, there were some lawyers who were bringing up just this sort of scenario. – scurzuzu (CC)
