"We’re thrilled that Amazon is offering such a new approach to library ebook..." said one Seattle's librarian, and one Kindle blog listed out the top advantages. (You can even read them if you don’t own a Kindle using one of Amazon's free apps, and they'll also be available in Amazon's browser-based Cloud Reader for Safari and Chrome.)
Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be
lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition.
