  •  It is a book selection method... (10+ / 0-)

    ...I have not ever used or encountered before.  A book shop has time for a few pages, a library time to read it or set it down.  With the Kindle format, you can go "yeah, well, it is pretty good...but just not quite up to 2.99 of my last 40 bucks" and four chapters in (to a book which may deserve more, or less, of my time) it goes, never to be seen again.  I feel cheap :}  I wonder how other people will adapt to this, as more work is distributed that way.

    Joyce is a joy.  Though several friends got a bit twitchy when I foisted the book on them, and none have read it yet.

    ...j'ai découvert que tout le malheur des hommes vient d'une seule chose, qui est de ne savoir pas demeurer en repos dans une chambre.
