I've been watching with interest the popularity of the Kindle and the Nook. I'm not ready to invest in either, but my curiosity has been aroused. The one thing I'm still curious about is whether all public libraries have the ability to "lend" their books to these wonderful, new-fangled reading devices. Because that is the point that would eventually persuade me to spend some of Cliff's money on one. I suppose I could just call my local library and ask.
Somehow in my browsing the Internet today I saw "Kindle for Mac, free download".
What's this? I can get Kindle on my computer, free?
Indeed I can and did, and began shopping away for books at Amazon.com. Free books, because I really don't think I'll be sitting in this computer chair to read books; I log enough time here as it is. But this gives me a chance to see how I like Kindle, and whether I think it would be worth buying. I downloaded Ben Franklin's autobiography to start with.
There's also a free download for your PC, if that's what you own.
I love freebies.
