Agreed. I'm no fan of Apple, but this is probably just "payback" for Apple "not paying enough taxes." As far as the NYT and publishers of hardcover/softcover books goes, why try to save them? This seems like the modern equivalent of saving steam locomotives, or buggywhips...

Ms. Kelly, have you used a Kindle? You can make notes, see other people's notes and highlighted passages, and share your books with other people.

With books, you can make notes to yourself in the margins and then pass those books on to other people (friends, family etc.) They can read your notes and know how you feel and what you think about certain parts of the book. You can't do that with a Kindle.

1. No batteries required.
2. Page turning is easier.
3. Less eyestrain.
4. Lots of folks still like books.
5. Books still make great gifts.
6. Paper is easier to recycle than Kindles.
7. Books cannot be erased as Amazon is wont to do with Kindle.
8. And, of course, the NYT is still great for wrapping fish...!
