We are getting even more digital these days …


Now this surprised me … really surprised me … I had no idea it would happen so soon.

I’ve been aware that local book sellers have been struggling a bit … Amazon is just so darn convenient and with bad weather outside, a few clicks is a heck of a lot easier … but this latest news … gasp …

Well, its like this … CNET reports that …

The digital book has overtaken the paper book on Amazon.com. And this time that isn’t only true about hardcover books. Now we’re talking paperbacks

I guess its just me … but when faced with a choice of lots of different formats, my preference is still the FDT format … Er sorry, what’s that you say … Oh, you are asking what FDT format is, ah thats easy, its an abbreviation for Flat Dead Tree.

Sigh! … yes I know, I guess it really dates me.

UPDATE: Just found Homo Evolutis on Amazon … its one of the inaugural TEDBooks and it has a fantastic review … in fact if you look at the negative reviews, even they look positive … the top review reads …

this is written like a powerpoint on steroids, bursting with astonishing facts – and humor. It can be read in less than two hours, but it’s an utterly mindshifting perspective on where we are, and who we are. Recent developments in life sciences are, depending on your point of view, shocking or thrilling. Indeed, most people will leave this book feeling a combination of excitement and queasiness at where we’re heading.

no one could be anything other than engrossed.

Fantabalous … I want it … like NOW … but what the heck … its only available for the Kindle … and I don’t own one … now I truly feel I’m being left behind.
