Well the Kindle arrived yesterday. Have to say, the thing comes pretty much ready to go out of the box. However it doesn't come with any books, and since I've got plenty to read this weekend, I didn't have anything I wanted to buy, but of course I wanted to try out my new toy. So I went to the free section and downloaded The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, one of my favorite books of all time. A few seconds later I was re-reading The Red-Headed League on my shiny new Kindle. One wonders what Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would have thought of his books being transmitted through the ether. Anyway, League is still a classic, no matter the format.
