Today is the 10th anniversary of the release of the original 1st generation Amazon Kindle. The original device cost $400 and sold out within hours.
In contrast, today’s basic Kindle costs only $79.99. We’ve come a long way in the last 10 years, While the Kindle was not the first e-book reader, the device, along with Amazon’s marketing, has made an indelible impact on the book industry. I know that it has certainly changed the way I read.
Happy Birthday, Kindle!
How about you? Has the Kindle changed the way you read or impacted your life?
