I'm reading Quantum: Einstein, Bohr and the Great Debate About the Nature of Reality on the Kindle at the moment. It is a splendid narrative indeed and retails for 99p only in digital form. I wonder how on earth the economics of that pan out?

I recommend it heartily to the science teaching Vince and the the science teaching Chris who sometimes pop their heads in here. (ETH in Switzerland, where Vince was an academic in an earlier life features quite a lot in the pages on Einsten, and Chris is the guy who introduced me to Amazon's e-book reader. It's all deeply intertwingled.)

In a related development I have pre-ordered 1Q84 (See Icons passim for Haruki Murakami) so I imagine that it will simply appear on the Kindle menu when it is published on 18 October. This has got to be the way forward.
