Digital Albom: commencement speech through Kindle
By HILLEL ITALIE (AP National Writer)
From Associated Press
July 17, 2008 2:13 PM EDT
NEW YORK - Mitch Albom has a new book out - well, not really a book, but a commencement speech in book form. And not in traditional book form, but as an e-book, published exclusively through Amazon.com's Kindle reader.

"Commencement Speech To His Nephew's Graduating Class: May 30, 2008, Nice France" went on sale Thursday for 99 cents. It won't be a money maker for Albom - proceeds are being donated to a Detroit-based charity for the homeless - but it does offer a test for the digital device that has created a great debate about the future of books and great speculation over how much the Kindle is part of that future.
