At last I got in my hands on the first digital book. Many years ago when I was writing my master’s thesis , my subject for my research was digital books, internet etc. I remember then, I was passionate about the subject, but somehow back in my mind I had my doubts about the realization of all the project. My main worry was the screen how it will be possible to read something like a book in a pc screen which is quite tiring .
But holding this small book (Amazon Kindle) in the size of paperback and looking at the screen all my worries disappeared. It looks and read like a paper and can hold 200 non-llustrated titles, newspapers and magazines.You can download content from Amazon in the proprietary Kindle format(AZW) and Amazon offers an email-based service that will convert HTML, DOC (Microsoft Word), PDF, JPEG, GIF.. documents to AZW. You can select reading material (newspapers) through the Kindle or through a computer at Amazon Kindle store. It is delivered wireless so you don’t need to make any provision.
The only drawback perhaps is holding it. I would prefer more space (handle) from the left side.
I am looking forward to see ‘Johnny and Me’ as a digital book !
Hooray Hooray the dreams never end ;)
