This is funny, but I found the Kindle discussion interesting. A published friend and I discussed how we wouldn’t want our books (mine is unpublished with only one layer of dust on it) to be sold on Kindle. My reason is because I’m old fashion. I believe there’s more of an intimacy with a book and its pages then in a technical device. Thanks for sharing.
