In my last post, I mentioned that I read The Right Stuff via Kindle. It was my first purchase of an Amazon e-book, and I read it on my iPhone. A common theme across the blogosphere concerning the Kindle, and ebooks in general, follows the refrain “oh no, if all my books are digital, however will everyone know how literate I am, since there won’t be such impressive bookshelves to display!”
The answer, until we get wall-sized displays which can simply display all your book covers, like iTunes displays album covers, is to make blog posts advertising just what you’ve been reading. Clearly.
