Test drive: Kindle 2

Not streamlined enough to be an Apple e-book, but Amazon's Kindle 2 comes close. I'd like to see fewer buttons, a touch screen and more screen text. The one at the ADB library has only two books: The New Oxford American Dictionary and the Intro of Chip & Dan Heath's Made to Stick.

The board beside the Kindle asked: "After trying out the Kindle do you think you would like to read a book on it?" Twelve voted "yes"; eight "no". Can you guess what I voted?
