I received for Christmas one of those 3rd generation Kindle devices from Amazon. I like it. It’s a beautiful screen which is easy to read, the form factor and user interface is fine, and I like the idea of being able to hold so many books and documents in one place. I tend not to know what I will want to read so I like having lots of options available for when I do read. That means on trips I travel “heavy”. No longer.
I’ve been using the Kindle software on a Mac and on my iPhone for some time. Accordingly, I’ve collected a few e-books. I’m now looking at getting a few more to round out the collection. Sadly, some of the books that I really want to get are available in USA from Amazon.com, but not available in UK from Amazon.co.uk. I’ve not done a rigorous review, but it looks like a large number of books available to USA customers are simply not offered to UK customers.
That sort of ticks me off.
