Novelty Treats: The Book Vs. The Kindle

Green Apple Books & Music, an apparently awesome San Francisco book store i do not believe i've had the pleasure of visiting, has put together an awesome series of short films highlighting the drawbacks of Amazon.com's cash cow e-book device The Kindle. It's a literary cage match, and they even bring in Lemony Snicket's Daniel Handler to drive the point home in episode #10. For the record, in my literary snobbery and fear of an over dependency on silly forms of technology, i am most certainly opposed to the idea of reading a book on a backlit screen. These people speak my language. Watch them all here.
