    heh, the close-up pic of the text is showing one with Ender’s Game – “the enemy’s gate is down.”

    This cries out for Cory to write a story called “Fahrenheit xxx (not 451 probably) which is the temperature at which “Kindle”ing burns and destroys all the books stored on it. So what is the temperature that a Kindle burns?

    You could simply cut out the screen area and place this over a paper copy of the book. Fool the elderly.

    How long before the photo is pulled for usage of copyrighted text. You know they would do it just as mush as I do.

    The Auto-Ignition Temperature – or the minimum temperature required to ignite a gas or vapor in air without a spark or flame being present – of wood = 300++ degC (http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/fuels-ignition-temperatures-d_171.html)

    I want to know if they can make a new face plate for the Kindle so it’s this pretty.

    @Harpdevil: I think we can safely assume that the Count of Montecristo is no longer protected by any copyrights. 165 years or so should really be enough even for the craziest copyright laws currently being proposed.

    But what bugs me – why does this thing look so much more beautiful than the original? Of course the butt-ugly Kindle font had to go, but still …

    Cut out the screen and replace it with a long roll of paper. Then rig a scroll wheel where the Next Page button resides. That would be sweet.

    (If I weren’t utterly useless at hands-on stuff, I’d be tempted.)
