I have never been that sure on the whole idea of electronic book readers or ‘e-books’ I have always been of the mindset that a book is so much better, I mean it never runs out of power, you can drop it, spill coffee on it and well they are quite cheap. With the launch details of Amazon’s new Kindle however I have to admit I’m tempted, for one thing the battery lasts a month on one charge which is amazing and two the incluson of wifi and free 3G is a genius touch. Just think your in the airport waiting for the flight home, you have just finished your holiday book, yes youi could rumage through the small airport book shop or if you have a Kindle simply go online and download exactly the book you are after!
