The Kindle becomes more and more attractive, beginning with its mere 8 ounces — a few small bananas, part of an average cup of coffee, less than a can of soup — and moving on to its dropping price.
Books that are read page after page, telling a story or developing an argument from start to finish are well-suited, it seems. But what about browsing books? Books of poetry or odd facts about this and that seem problematic. In those books, it’s satisfying to land on one thing and another without design. Can one flip around randomly in a Kindle?
