Digital books or e-books are now outselling their printed equivalent by at least two to one and this is due almost entirely to the remarkable success of Amazons Kindle.
The ability to download that latest best seller or obscure reference book immediately and cheaply, is revolutionising the publishing industry.
Just as iTunes and the iPod changed the way music was bought and sold forever, you can be sure the Kindle will have a similar affect on the way we interact with our favourite authors and scribes.
So where will you buy your Kindle E-Book Reader?
Amazon design and manufacture the Kindle, so the worlds favourite on-line mega store should obviously be your first port of call but if you can’t wait for it to arrive through the post the Kindle is now being stocked by many high street stores, such as Waterstones, PC World and Staple’s but be warned, as Amazon supply all of these retailers you won’t see any significant difference in price and in fact you could possibly be paying a little bit more for the privilege of getting your hands on one ‘in store’.
