I watched an amazing story via my friend Andy Fish.
“She can’t even feed herself… but she is giving people around the world the Bread of Life.”
You gotta take 3 minutes to watch Sarah’s story.
Reading on a Kindle
Kindle and iPad Books Take Longer to Read than Print
I found this article interesting. Not sure I agree, but it is interesting.
I’ve actually felt that I read more quickly on my Kindle 2. I can get into a rhythm of clicking the Next Page button regularly and intentionally moving my eyes fairly quickly down the screen in time to click Next in rhythm. I recognize that this is a subjective measurement so perhaps I’ve been deceiving myself!
I’ve noticed that Amazon has announced a new Kindle DX with a 50% higher contrast e-ink screen.
What about you? Do you “feel” that reading is 10% slower on your Kindle? I assume the Nook might have a similar result.
Note: I’ve been waiting for my Kindle 2.5 update. It hasn’t come yet. Amazon is releasing the updates in batches. Want to get yours more quickly? Amazon has explained how on their manual update page.
