The gruff but lovable John Dvorak at PCMag, on his experience with the Kindle:
The Kindle is not an iPad, not a computer, and not really a book. When you get a book, it has heft and pages and you know what you are in for as you begin to read it. It can be daunting. The Kindle is one page that is refreshed to another page. That’s it. There is no physical reminder that you have a long way to go to finish the book. It eliminates all sorts of psychological aversions from the reading process.
Yet, as Dvorak also notes, the Kindle seems particularly friendly to shorter works, including novellas and short stories, rather than the ever-longer books publishers have been pushing for the past decade or two in an attempt to equate value with tonnage.
