bookofjoe (Kindle Edition)

Bjjlh

Long story short: It's here.

Why read for free when you can pay?

Wait a minute, joe — this isn't the Bizarro World.

Doh.


Pros:

Downloads automatically even if you don't have WiFi or Internet access

It's the new new thing

Puts 2¢ a day in my pocket — (Amazon pays me 30% of the subscription price)


Cons:

Doesn't work with iPod touch/iPhone Kindle apps (neither do any Kindle blogs or newspapers, for that matter) — you need either of the two current Kindle readers

Appears in black and white as opposed to online color version

Links won't work since you're reading a download, not an active web page

Costs over 6¢ a day — money you could use elsewhere

Will there be photos? Half the fun is looking at photos of the products you showcase!
I'd say its only good for the articles you repost, but then aren't you getting into some murky legal waters?

Who will feed the children if my 6 cents a day goes to this? Whatever, they aren't my children.

If you subscribe to yourself, you can give Amazon more than four cents a day!
