This article from the Christian Science Monitor has some good points (and raises some serious concerns) about Amazon's model of Kindle and e-book usage. http://www.csmonitor.com/2009/0318/p09s01-coop.html
And I agree with almost all the points they make... but that doesn't mean I am going to give up my Kindle. At least not until something better comes along. Even if it does mean I'm a bad librarian... I guess I'll just have to live with the guilt. Now please excuse me, I have to go download another sample chapter from Amazon, spawn of the devil and bane of the e-publishing industry.
