Amazon, like no other company aside from Apple is able to release a product and continue to iterate on it, year after year, until finally even the people that have been hesitant are interested in it. Today, to much fanfare Amazon updated their entire Kindle lineup. New Kindle Fires in 7″ and 9″ and brand-new e-ink e-readers. And I want one of those new KIndle’s. The eInk looks pretty nice. The price is right and it seems light, small and straight-forward. A consumption device for reading books and a few things more.

The thing I am still holding out on is the hope that book publishers would combine physical book purchases with download codes for ebook versions of their books.

I still want to be able to put the real book into my book shelf. I love book shelves.
