I would pay a fair price and call it win::win. But when you look at a book listing, and the price structure is like this;Hardcover: $14.99Kindle: $13.49Softcover: $9.99AMP New & Used: $2.99 - $11.99

But as I understand it, the ads are for Amazon itself so Amazon wouldn't be collecting commissions anyway, just hoping they'll generate sales. I'm not a total Kindle-loss for Amazon. I have purchased a few Kindle books and perhaps I'll get used to the idea and start buying more paid content for Kindle, but I still don't like the idea of "buying" something that can't be gotten out of the Kindle Sandbox. I have books on the shelf the I bought 20 years ago and their presence reminds me that I've read them and I and will read some of them again. Will I be able to read my Kindle books purchased now in 20 years?

Quote from: Brian on July 24, 2013, 04:41:03 AMIs it just me or, compared to an iPad mini or a Kindle Fire, is the Nexus really long and skinny?
Quote from: DavidW on July 24, 2013, 07:32:58 AMLooks like the new Nexus 7 will have a whopping 1920x1200 resolution!!http://www.the-digital-reader.com/2013/07/24/new-nexus-7-up-for-pre-order-at-best-buy/
Quote from: Scarpia on July 24, 2013, 07:37:25 AMLooks like all of the rumors were true. It seems clear the thing will be unveiled at a media even in San Francisco today, but the one question remaining open is the street date. One of the rumor sites that had the technical details right said that the product would be available in Taiwan end-of-July and in the US in early August. I see Best Buy is no help, they just say "coming soon."
Quote from: DavidW on July 26, 2013, 07:43:29 AMbtw a recent survey has shown that 3 in 4 americans prefer paper books to ebooks. A similar survey found similar results in the UK. Looks like the physical format is here to stay.
