The Kindle is here, the kindle is here!

Well, it isn't the new telephone book, but I can understand the excitement. After waiting, as we often do in Canada, for new technology to be released above 49, the Financial Post reports that Canadians can finally buy a Kindle so that we can download eBooks from Amazon.com.

I have to say that I am personally not jumping up and down with excitement. I would much rather haul around a plethora of softcover items. I am on the road in Calgary today and tomorrow and my laptop bag has room for the laptop, some papers, my clothes, a hairbrush and 3 novels. The current novel (just finished on the plane this a.m.) the next (which will become the current in the hotel this evening), and the just in case (just in case I can't sleep and I burn through the current).

Just to be clear, I have read all three of these novels before, and it was very easy to pull them off my shelf to toss in the overnight bag.
