Hi, again!

I don't really know what "Kindle" is, but from what I have been able to discover, it is a unit that downloads all sorts of stuff, e-books included but in a different format, which Amazon has introduced. It's a wireless, portable reading device with instant access to more than 90,000 books, blogs, newspapers and magazines. What the description says it will do is: Whether you are in bed or on the train, Kindle lets you think of a book and get it in less than a minute. (No, it isn't based on telekinesis. You have to pick out the item you want and hit the submit button for that to happen). From the sound of the reviews, this gadget is a miracle worker. The unit is the size of a paperback, the font can be made larger or smaller depending upon who's eyes, young or more mature)that are doing the reading. Apparently, it also answers questions you give it. You can look up a book, review it and buy it right away. Entire books download in a few seconds. 765 reviews are already listed on Amazon about this unit giving it 3 stars. Some think, this is the wave of the future for ebooks. The question is: what will this do to print books?
