Kindles in the Night

I just came across this post at Silicon Alley Insider about spotting an actual Kindle user and found it amusing. Last week, it was a hot, sticky evening and I decided to go to this Sushi, Live Jazz spot that I frequent in midtown.

Usually, I get stuck at the bar but I deal by reading whatever Galley I have on hand. So anyway, last week toward the end of my meal this older man sits next me. He must have been in his sixties at least and he whips out his kindle, which I found interesting.

One, I hadn’t seen one before although I’m very familiar with the Reader Digital Book from Sony since they were given out to my entire company, and two, he was up there in age and did not fit into what we stereotypically define as the techie generation and he also seemed like a businessman of some sort.

I struck up a conversation with him about the Kindle and he raved about all its features. It turned out he was reading a business book and I, a Twelve book. He thought it was odd that I paid in cash and perhaps, that I was there alone. While I thought it was odd he owned a kindle.
