Caught up with a mate of mine last night, currently stuck in Sydney for a couple of days with Chinese visa issues. The last time I saw him was in Washington DC last year – when we went to Borders to buy me a Sony Reader. Unimpressed, he stumped (later) for a kindle. Anyhow, his verdict was that despite there being a thousand reasons why the kindle is an awful device, he’s read more books in the last year than he has in the previous five. Moreover, he’s now got a Kindle DX so all of his work pdfs are read that way too. As for bookshops? He browses the print versions and then buys the Kindle copy.

When I opined that e-ink screen refreshes sill didn’t cut it, he just told me to get over it 🙂
