What Neil Gaiman likes about the Kindle, and why you should care | The Digital Reader

What Neil Gaiman likes about the Kindle, and why you should care | The Digital Reader:
"The Kindle, he writes in a forthcoming article for Locus magazine, “wins” over print in two areas. First, it’s easier to read than a printed book if you need larger sized text, because it can make any book a large-print edition without requiring any real knowledge of how the device works; this is both a crucial feature and usability requirement for the current 40-and-over set. Second, its “buy once, read anywhere” approach makes reading big books a pleasure instead of a task."
