Read Electronically Displayed Words

Why are words on white paper different from the same words on a digital device?

They're the same words, sentences, paragraphs, and chapters in both places. The internalization of written words should be the same regardless of the medium upon which they're read, right? Well, according to some readers, the experience of reading is not equivalent though the words are the same.

My family gave me an Amazon Kindle as a Christmas gift in 2008. I've been reading books on the device since then and have completed thirteen so far. The picture above shows my Amazon Kindle beside twelve books. All twelve are in the electronic device, saved with my highlights and notes, and easily accessible with a few clicks.

I am convinced that hard copy book selling is on the way down. It's not logical anymore to buy books, read them, and put them on a shelf to collect dust.

Think about it and get on the cutting edge of innovation.

Here is the list of titles I've read on Kindle:

1. Getting Things Done by David Allen 2001

2. Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, 2008

3. American Theocracy: The Peril & Politics of Radical Religion, Oil, & Borrowed Money in the 21st Century by Kevin Phillips, 2006

4. 5000 Year Leap: 30 Year Anniversary Edition With Glenn Beck Forward by W. Cleon Skousen, James Michael Pratt, Carlos L. Packard, and Evan Frederickson, 2009

5. Tomorrow Now: Envisioning The Next 50 Years by Bruce Sterling, 2003

6. Biscuitville by J. Phillips L Johnston 2010

7. Half The Sky by Nicholas D. Kristof & Sheryl WuDunn, 2010

8. The Quants: How a New Breed of Math Whizzes Conquered Wall Street & Nearly Destroyed It by Scott Patterson 2010

9. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, 2010

10. Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder, 2003

11. The Spy Who Loved Us: The Vietnam War by Thomas A. Bass, 2009

12. No Apology by Mitt Romney, 2010
