Kindle for PC? Why do you mock me?!?!

Posted 12-29-2010 at 10:50 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

I get the PC software up and running on my WinXP machine at home, and make a startling discovery...Books in the "Popular Classics" section of the Kindle Store are...wait for it...completely free!
