The Amazon Kindle is a new,
cynical way of Amazon selling books without having to pay postage modern format of reading content without having to waste trees.
Amazon have recently redesigned their e-reader and is selling the new one with much fanfare. You can pre-order it right now and have it arrive just in time for conference – which hopefully will mean you can read your conference papers on it, if you have opted for paperless confereeing this year.
And, what, I hear the tumults call, will happen to Lib Dem Voice?
Well, worry ye not, for LDV is also available on Kindle. Click here for a trial subscription: LibDemVoice on Amazon Kindle
Slightly strangely, given that practically no costs are incurred by anyone other than us, a subscription will cost you a princely £1.99 a month. We submitted the blog to Amazon and it will be us who benefit from nearly all of that money – we were not in the same boat as Iain Dale who was a little surprised to find others charging for his content.
Of course, if you think the content we produce here is worth £2 a month, and you don’t have a Kindle, you are more than welcome to cut out the middle-person and donate it to us directly by standing order.
You can also donate money to us indirectly by using any of the book or technology links on our blog to buy stuff from Amazon. As Amazon Associates, we take a small cut of your spend.
