This might be one of those embed’s that US exclusive, for which I apologize to International Bitchery members. Claire Duffy from MSNBC has done a segment on Sir Kindle the Fusspot (not my Kindle, personally, but all Kindles in general), discussing how the Kindle is alluring to readers, and specifically to the book industry. Kensington’s Kate Duffy, her sister, appears in the segment talking about why the Kindle rocks for editors and publishing folks who no longer have to lug home mountains of manuscripts. I know of at least three editors in addition to Duffy who adore having an ebook reader for manuscript reviewing.
Interestingly, Claire Duffy’s report mentions that the press conference on Monday from Amazon at the Morgan Library will announce Kindle 2.0 though Amazon, to my knowledge, hasn’t confirmed that. Either way, big ups to Las Dos Duffys for examining the Kindle and other ebook readers’ impact on publishing folks.
