How did I miss this?

Newsweek ran a cover story on the Kindle back in November of last year. I tripped over it doing a Google search. It was an excellent article! It mentioned earlier e-book attempts, and it also talked about the reading experience. The article describes the trance-like state induced by a good book as the story taking the reader "down the rabbit hole," a nice spec fic allusion.

I'm starting to think the Kindle could really make a difference! One thing the article makes clear is that unlike some earlier book readers, the Kindle doesn't make you chose between a book and the web. This thing is designed for a web generation. It could restore reading novels for entertainment to the level of popularity it enjoyed in earlier times just by making it easier to do.

Now if only they can get the price down sometime soon....
