Is that a book?

While the big box stores are enjoying booming sales today in stores, some consumers would rather order their bargains online. One of the most talked about new products of the fall is only available online. Amazon.com is marketing a new electronic book reader called Kindle. This small device, according to Amazon may soon replace the printed book because it offers thousands of books at prices lower than print and also provides access to newspapers and magazines. Do people who read books want to read them on a screen? Will people prefer buying their books electronically instead of going to a bookstore to browse and choose? All that remains to be seen, but looking at the lines of shoppers at the stores in the early dark this morning, it seems as if many people still enjoy the in-person shopping experience.
