The jury’s out on whether Amazon’s new electronic book will be a hit or not. I’m a fan of building up my own library, so I’m probably not going to try it out, but I can see the benefits of downloading books immediately for 1/3 the price it would normally cost, not to mention all kinds of newspapers and magazines being handy in a relatively small package. Quite convenient sounding…
