The Last Adopter
I am not an early adopter.
I got my first DVD player so late that when I finally announced to my friends that I had one, I received a round of sarcastic golf-claps. My first iPod was actually an iPhone. And all my books are paper.
But today, I got on the trolley only slightly behind everyone else. Behold, a Kindle!
“But Mike,” I imagine you saying. “Why change your cheap, miserly ways now? Don’t you usually wait until they’re giving whatever it is away in cereal boxes?”
Because I’m a picky bastard, that’s why. I got my book back from being formatted (by the amazing crew at 52novels.com), and it turns out that ebook formatting can display a little differently on software readers than on an actual ebook.
So, the official story is that I wanted to make sure everything looked right for both software and hardware e-readers.
Unofficially…WHEEEE! A Kindle!
