Prime Members Don’t Forget Your Free Kindle First eBook Each Month

A couple weeks ago I posted a list of Amazon Prime’s Kindle related benefits, and I noted how it’s easy to forget about Kindle First (at least for me it is), so I figured I’d post a reminder for this month. Kindle First gives Amazon Prime members early access to a list of six ebooks […]

Too Bad Google Doesn’t Make a Dedicated E Ink eReader

I’ll admit, I often forget that Google sells ebooks. Sometimes I think Google forgets that too. They never seem to do any advertising or make any attempt whatsoever to gain visibility in the ebook space. Google’s ebook market share is reportedly only around 2% at best. That’s just crazy considering the fact that the Google […]

We Need More Options for Small Portable E Ink eReaders

Lately I’ve been regretting getting rid of some of the smaller ebook readers that I’ve owned over the years, like the 5-inch Sony PRS-350 and the 4.3-inch Pyrus Mini (pictured left).

What Will Amazon Do for Kindle’s 10th Anniversary?

It’s hard to believe but Kindles have been around for nearly 10 years now. Amazon released the first Kindle (pictured above) in November 2007. It sold out in less than 6 hours and was on backorder for several months after that. So with the Kindle’s tenth anniversary coming up in just a few months, it […]
