Laura Miller on Spamazon

Here’s her article.

The emptor must caveat real well these days.  While I think that the advent of e-readers has a lot of benefits (though I don’t currently plan to obtain one), any new technology signals that it has become popular and mainstream when it is invaded by crooks, garbage and advertising.  (Okay, sorry, that was triply repetitive.)  Anyway, do keep an eye out when buying, so you don’t get sucked into the Great Internet E-Trash Vortex of these sorts of books.

  1. I have been thinking about an e-reader, not for books, but for magazine and newspaper subscriptions. I am being drawn towards the Nook, not the Kindle, anyway. Nothing will ever replace a book for me, but from an environmental standpoint, I’d like to cut down on the paper waste that my numerous print periodicals produce. Thanks for bringing this article to my attention.
