Nicholson Baker from the New Yorker on the Kindle

Even though everyone has been raving about the Kindle, I haven’t really thought much of it. I know that the technology isn’t there yet to have a great low-powered display. I’ve also read e-books and I would never purchase them, especially when you can order real books instead. When you buy e-books, you buy nothing but digital ones and zeroes. When you buy a book, you buy something physical, something you can touch and feel. Nicholson Baker from the New Yorker explains it better than I do.
