  • Did he ever acknowledge his lack of futuristic vision?

  • I don't know. Of course, I doubt he was the only one expressing such opinions.

  • I can understand, I am still betting on the printed word against the Kindle and such.

  • I have to say, I love my Kindle -- and I've done more reading in the past two months than I did in the past two years.

  • Seriously. I bought the basic $79 Kindle with part of my tax refund, and it's one of the best purchases I've ever made. I found out today that a co-worker's spouse has just gotten one, and I was so excited, giving him all the links where you can find out which books are free or on sale, or where you can borrow Kindle books through the library. My brother in North Carolina feels the same way you do, but the Kindle has been great for my reading.
