“A 1982 Impala with blown shocks”

  • Nicholson Baker writes a marvelous essay on the hatchet job the Kindle does for the reading experience–but in the end, with a novel, he’s hooked. Illustrated and technical books don’t fare as well in the user experience department. Moving from reading eBooks on the iPod Touch to the Kindle, he writes: “Then, out of a sense of duty, I forced myself to read the book on the physical Kindle 2. It was like going from a Mini Cooper to a white 1982 Impala with blown shocks.”
