One thought on “Kindle: Amazon’s Wireless Reading Device

  1. I read your blog about how you love Kindle. I also love it but for a much different reason. I’m a writer and small press publisher. Unlike the big publishing companies that have thousands of titles I only have six. Kindle and similar devices kind of level the playing field. It opens up a whole new market for small publishers like me.

    I am new to kindle and haven’t had many sales yet but my books sell well in print and get great reviews. So far I haven’t gotten any reviews on the Kindle side but maybe you can be the first.

    My titles are:
    The Power to say “NO MORE” to abuse
    Darktales a collection of sick twisted scary stories
    Darktales Volume Two
    The Perfect Girl
    The EYES of Evil
    The Truth about Trucking.

    Im currently working on Darktales Volume Three and should be releasing that one soon.

    Anyways if you happen to buy any of my books on Kindle I want you to know the price is drasically lower than print copies for the obvious reason that there is no printing cost involved. Which is another reason I love Kindle.

    Hope you enjoy you Kindle and happy reading.
