It's true, the rumor is out there and it's true, I bought an expensive hardcover PAPER book on Amazon the other day. Why? Well, it's new, it's a great book ... and duh, as a Kindle lover and a recipient of a million great deals on ebooks on a regular basis thanks to Amazon, it's the least I could do. (And of course, it's not available on Kindle yet.)
See that's the thing, Amazon throws so many sweet deals your way as a Kindle owner or Prime member, you're fine with throwing some money for real books, or porch furniture, or some new software or hardware or a hundred other things their way. Beyond that, you KNOW they deliver and you love it when they do.
I wish they would make a little e-box as nice as their brown cardboard boxes, with some extra e-offers and stuff thrown in. I'd love to have a little digital graphic of the cardboard box suddenly appear on my desktop, that I could open by clicking on it. Please, Mr. Bezos, can't you gift-wrap my digital books too?
So a little box icon appears on my desktop and I click on it and it has a bunch of cool stuff (and a few free Kindle Samples and maybe a Kindle Single, I can say yes or no to with a clickable box)? Real artists ship and you guys are real artists, when it comes to shipping!
