During the health care proceedings, a sitting senator was seen reading a Kindle.



Looks like a DX to me.

That's the model I want. I am a bit miffed to see that many of the e-books available in my big city public library work on my Kindle only with a little work. Any many more work in ADE, which doesn't yet have a work around for the Kindle.

Quote:
WASHINGTON — Nearly three decades ago, Charles E. Grassley was among the Republican conservatives swept into the Senate on the wave that Ronald Reagan rode to the White House. Now he is on the defensive as he seeks a sixth term, no longer conservative enough for those back home in Iowa who style themselves the protectors of the Reagan legacy.

So it was that Mr. Grassley, who often has been at the center of creating major legislation, instead mostly kept his head down on Tuesday, reading news clippings and his Kindle as the Senate Finance Committee began work on legislation to overhaul the health care system.

There is a work-around but it requires a little more work than getting a library mobi book onto the Kindle. After you've done it once, it should become almost automated.

You're welcome and thank you! If you're going to be a big library user and want a larger reader, you may want to hold out and see what happens with the Sony Daily Edition or the Plastic Logic Reader.

Daffy is right! Once you do it once, it is automated. If I can do it, anyone can!
