Reader and Kindle
Professor Moss posted an interesting blog about a new wireless reading device. There are some reading devices out on the market now, two of which are the Reader and Kindle. The growing technology is making it easier and easier everyday to obtain information. Having a small portable device to read a book or a newspaper is a very creative and innovative tool. I would consider getting a Kindle myself if the price goes down. I like the fact that Professor Moss added the comment about texture in her blog. I think it would be quite difficult to adjust to such a device. We were taught to hold a book in our hands and manually flip pages to continue reading. It will be interesting to see how I would be able to adapt to a Reader or Kindle. I am unsure if I rather have a book on paper or read a book through a wireless device. Most of my reading is done through the computer so having another wireless device to read information from will probably not be a major adjustment for me. I am curious to know what others think about a wireless reading device!
