You don't have to own an electronic reader to be excited about the abundance of books available electronically. Amazon's Kindle e-book reading application is now giving a little love to Mac users (beyond their already handy iPhone app).
I am the first person to admit that I have a special kind of love for the tactile experience of reading.
My job in an art and architecture library during college was probably my favorite job of all time. Playing in in special collections, flipping through and repairing beautiful first editions and marveling in the craftsmanship and good design of books that were really worth their weight in gold (or maybe platinum…). Heaven, heaven, heaven.
But ebooks serve a different purpose in my literary landscape, giving me the flexibility to purchase books at a lower cost and sans the storage requirements (helloooo fiction and other less essential tomes). There are some books that do not lend themselves well to the electronic medium, as I currently read and take notes… but I can only imagine that as the hardware progresses, I will progress with it.
So, your thoughts on the further expansion of the Kindle empire? Cool and laden with the promise of extra book lovin' time? Or passe and/or freaking out your better book consumptive qualities?
