Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered easily, or are just some fun topics! Today is December 30th, 2007, I’m Royce, and I am here to tell you about a new product, the Kindle.
Now you are probably thinking, what is a Kindle? A Kindle is a electronic book reader that has gone on sale recently, on Amazon.Com. Now, you are probably like, so? why do we need to care about a book reader? Well, this book reader is the future of book reading. And who is the future? Us kids! So we need to care about this. Many publishing companies are mad because with this new digital book reader we don’t need the actual paper books. That might be a good thing, or a bad thing.
“I think it is a good thing that we are introduced to the Kindle, for it is the future! I mean, I always hate turning pages. Now you can just press a button and you are on the next page. I hated paper cuts and all of those problems with books.” says Melanie, a writer here at the Modern Typewriter.
Now, how does this Kindle work? Well, you buy the actual Kindle online for $400. But, then you buy each book on the Kindle for about $10. That is good and bad, because books might cost $30 and it would be cheaper on the Kindle. But if the regular prices of books are below $10, then it would cost more money.
The Kindle updates with newspapers, blogs, and websites everyday for you.
So is the Kindle a good idea, or a bad one? Leave us a comment to express your opinions!
