I downloaded Kindle for the iPhone and Ereader for my laptop to compare the two services. I just don’t find reading on the small iPhone screen feasible, but the Ereader on my laptop is surprisingly readible. I think it is a viable option to carrying a book on a plane, when I prefer to have the least amount of stuff to carry. I don’t think either option would compete with a printed book for reading at home so it would be primarily used only for travel. I read a lot and am a regular customer of Amazon not only for its prices but also for its convenience. I will buy from my local independent bookstore if they stock a book that I want, but trying to order either in person or online through them just doesn’t cut it. They are SLOW, like 2 weeks. For the past 6 weeks I’ve been traveling alone by car that doesn’t have an iPod connection so I’ve been limited to listening to music on CDs. I subscribed to Audible, but I just didn’t enjoy listening to the very long recordings.
