Reading Abe Lincoln on the Kindle

by Brett Schulte on October 22, 2009 · 2 comments

AmazonKindleMike Kienzler at the always interesting Abraham Lincoln Observer has a blog entry up concerning Abraham Lincoln related literature available on Amazon’s new Kindle reader.  As Mike relates, what Amazon promises regarding Abe and what they actually deliver offers up mixed results.  Go check it out!

I was also interested to note that Barnes & Noble is about to offer a direct challenger to Kindle called the Nook.  The Kindle (or a close competitor) has been on my must have list for awhile now.  If I don’t get one at Christmas, I’ll have to create a web site for someone and use the profits to purchase one.  This item looks to be especially useful on airplanes and other means of public transportation.

Mike,

You’re welcome. I’m eager to see how people compare the Kindle and the Nook.
