Today’s news: Two Coats of Paint is available on Amazon’s e-book, the Kindle. I don’t generally swoon over fancy electronics, but I admit I want one of these babies. During summer residencies, I could load up the Kindle with the books, magazines and newspapers on my reading list and hit the road– so much easier than carrying a sackful of ink-on-paper. NY Times, Boston Globe, Wall Street Journal, The Nation, The Atlantic, New Yorker and more are available, and blogs, which cost about 1.99 cents for each subscription, can be downloaded, too. One of my favorite features is the adjustable typesize so that when I forget my reading glasses I can just scale it up. Kindle blog feeds provide full text content and images, and are updated wirelessly throughout the day. The cost of the wireless connection is included in the price, which is about $360. Note that as you read this short ode to the Kindle, the choice of art blogs keeps growing.
