Like the Walls of Jericho

A big wall is tumbling down, promising to provide greater, much more convenient access to millions of veteran and new readers to books and other media: Amazon has just significantly cut the price of its best-selling Kindle e-reader from $259 to $189 (see link). In the not too distant future, even kids will likely be toting around a Kindle or some other e-reader. For more background, see this N.Y. Times link.

My own books and writings, including this blog, are now available in Kindle form (see the blog sidebar). May the walls keep tumbling down! I expect that more people will start reading more and spending less time watching movies or TV as these devices become as ubiquitous as cell phones.
