ED DRISCOLL: THE GUTENBERG GALAXY GOES DIGITAL. “Being able to read a book anywhere, and carry the digital equivalent of a massive stack of them onto an airplane via my Kindle, laptop or Android Tablet is a godsend. (Especially since I never know how bleary I’ll be once I get on a plane, I can raise or lower the brainpower my reading material requires accordingly without stuffing my carrying-on bag full of ‘analog books.’)”

I finished Steve Stirling’s Tears Of The Sun on my iPhone. I love the cross-platform sync — at home I’ll read on my iPad, but when I’m out and about I can call up whatever I’m reading on my iPhone and go right to wherever I stopped. Very handy. My only complaint is that the Kindle App for iPhone won’t sort archived items by recency, only by title and author.
