and that Stephen King has it? I just found out about this. Apparently Amazon asked Stephen King to write a short story for the launch of the new Kindle (in 2009). Stephen's story featured a Pink Kindle, so they made and presented him with his own Pink Kindle.
Gosh Darnit, I want a Pink Kindle. Seriously. I never wanted a Kindle until I saw his pink one. I think ereaders are a great idea, and I can see the appeal of having all of your books in one place. But so far I haven't felt the need to own an ereader. I still really like my books. I like holding books and turning pages, and looking at the thickness of a book, and where my bookmark is in relation to the end (or beginning) of a book. But I could really go for a Pink Kindle.
