But what I most like about the whole Kindle experience is that in some intangible and inexplicable way it has managed to use digital technologies to turn me away from hypertextuality.
I love the Internet – always will do, of course. But Amazon’s Kindle has reminded me of the simple pleasure of burying oneself in a text – a pleasure I had lost in an online maze of endless restless clicking.
A simple pleasure indeed.
That wondrous permission we readers sometimes choose to offer up to those deserving writers who with their wisdom regale us and reward us.
That beautiful moment when we choose to allow an author the time and space to lead us through their world.
That is why Amazon’s Kindle is worth so very much more than its technology.
All I can says is, yup. I offered my thoughts along similar lines a few days ago.
