This Sunday's edition of the New York Times brings it's list of the ten best books of 2007, which includes both fiction and non-fiction titles.
Only two of the books were in my library already (The Nine and Imperial Life in the Emerald City), so there's quite a list of books to discover.
As a test, I checked to see how many of the ten were available in digital form to be read on Amazon's Kindle device, and happily, the number is sixty percent.
Not bad at all for a new device and ebook format. It validates the appeal of the Kindle vs. other ebook formats like the Sony Reader, given that the Amazon Kindle library has over 90,000 titles vs. something like 20,000 for the Sony product. Plus, with Amazon's price subsidty, most of the titles are priced at $9.99 vs. $20 or more in other formats.
So, I've wirelessly ordered all the Kindle titles, and look forward to catching up on my new reading list for 2007. The rest will have to wait until they're available on the Kindle.
