Get this blog on the Kindle (free two-week trial)

If you are a fan of the Kindle, and you already have one, you can read this blog on the Kindle! Each blog on the Kindle offers a free two-week trial, so you can try this blog on the Kindle for free. After the two-week free trial, the regular price (set by the Kindle people) is 99c per month.

The Kindle subscription has the benefit that all the updates are delivered to you automatically by the Kindle Whispernet network services.

However, you don't have to sign up for a paying subscription. There are other ways to read this blog on the Kindle for free, however, they require manual steps on your behalf. See the section "Other Book Readers" for more on those options.

Other Kindle-related updates
Amazon has launched an international version of the Kindle that can work over US and International wireless services. This is based on the second-generation six-inch Kindle and started shipping on October 19 for $279.

If you don't plan on being outside the US frequently, you can get the existing second-generation 6-inch Kindle at the newly discounted price of $259.

But if you think the prices above are too high, you can also get a refurbished first-generation 6-inch Kindle for $150. This is sold by Warehouse Deals, which is an Amazon company, and fulfilled by Amazon herself.

On the other end of the spectrum, if you want the biggest screen possible, you can get the Kindle DX with its nearly 10-inch screen for $489.

Other Book Readers, iPhones and mobile devices
We are not very familiar with the other book readers - a number of new models have come out the last few weeks, and even more are planned. Barnes and Noble has just announced their first hardware eBook reader, The Nook.

If your favorite hardware book reader can read RSS feeds, then be sure to add our full text feed to your collection. We do not charge anything, but we do not know if your book readers may be charging fees for airtime or bandwidth and such.

You can also use a number of free online services to convert the latest posts to PDF or other eBook formats and load them up on your book reader. One such service is provided by the french startup Feedbooks. Another is Instapaper.

For iPhones, iPods and other mobile devices, our full-text RSS feed is your best shot at getting the latest updates. The blog itself is designed for computer-use on screens over 1000-pixels wide.

If you have any favorite book readers and other mobile devices and have any suggestions on how to make this blog available on your favorite device, please send us an email or leave a comment right below.
