News – The Kindle comes to Canada, which means National Post and The Globe and Mail come to the Kindle. Folders may be coming to the Kindle, too. For real? Andrys Basten declares “it’s official, folks.” And, the Kindle may have the upcoming holiday season pretty much to itself. Click here for Abhi’s observations.
Interview – Brian Kellett (aka Tom Reynolds) of the Random Acts of Reality blog drives an ambulance for the London Ambulance Service, and he’s a recent convert to the Kindle. He will soon begin another blog, Paper Not Included, focusing on eBooks in the U.K. He is also the author of Blood, Sweat and Tea: Real-Life Adventures in an Inner-City Ambulance. (Also available as free TXT file at the Internet Archive.)
Content – A TeleRead post leads me to the Resource Shelf and then the Online Books Page and the Internet Archive, where I found an ePub edition of Samuel Butler’s The Way of All Flesh. Can my Kindle read an ePub book? Yes, it can, thanks to Calibre. Click here for Calibre video. How would Edward Tufte explain all that’s out there for eBooks?
Comments – Lots of great comments, including the Kindle on an episode of “Castle” and an audio comment from Jim Jones.
