Thinking of an E-Book Reader for Christmas? Choose Kindle
(1) Amazon is, by far, the leader in e-book titles. It is a strong, stable company that has a huge established base in the e-book world.
(2) The Kindle is a great device. I think it is one sweet gadget. I don’t see much point in a 3G/digital data model, given the fact that the Internet is available via WiFi nearly everywhere these days. It is light, easy to read in bright light, and offers a great e-reader for $139. I think this has put it within reach of a many people today. When it first came out, it cost close to $500!
(3) The Kindle is not only a device, it is an entire platform that allows you to read Kindle formatted titles on a huge variety of devices: all desktop computers, all laptop computers, all netbook computers, on every Apple iPhone, iTouch, and on the iPad, on Android and Blackberry devices, etc. In other words, you have the best possible world of reading options with the Kindle platform.
(4) Concordia Publishing House has, presently, 94 titles available on the Kindle. We will be adding 100 or so more titles in the first half of next year.
