Amazon Kindle...reading books for free
I have had a Kindle (electronic book reader) for about 8 months now. I love it. But, to be honest, I will probably always prefer to read a physical book. I wouldn't trade my Kindle for anything though. It is absolutely vital when it comes to traveling. No longer to I need to bring a suitcase that is half full of books. Or, ask my sister to bring me a stash because I finished all of the ones I brought way sooner than expected.
But, my favorite part is where one publisher said that the month before giving a book away for free, they sold 97 copies. Then, the gave away a book, and the next month the had over 2,000 PURCHASES of the book! Try telling them that giving something away for free doesn't work.
