The Reader

I’ve spoken pretty extensively about my mother’s day gift of an iPad, but over this past weekend, another revelation came to my mother which she excitedly showed me. But first, a little background.

My mother is an avid reader. She picks up a 300-page book on a Monday and it’s typically done by Tuesday night, if not sooner. This means she goes through a lot of books in a very short period of time, which fills up their home library pretty quickly. It’s one of the reasons that I got her an iPad.

On Sunday, she ran up to me and showed me the latest book she bought in hardcover. She says to me, “Kevin, look at this book. I just bought it, and the other day, I was reading it and I caught myself pushing one of the words to pull up the dictionary. Can you believe that?” Because of that incident and a few others like it, she’s been re-purchasing books on iBook, the Barnes & Noble Reader, and I think the Kindle app as well. Fascinating.

I went out the other day and bought myself a movie on Blu-Ray. On the box was a label: Comes with Blue-Ray version, DVD copy, and a free digital version.I wonder how long it is before books come with a free digital version as well?
