Why can’t books be like music?

by on Aug.10, 2012, under Uncategorized

So.. I had stacks of CD’s when I first bought an iPod.. and through the miracle of technology, I was able to get all those hundreds and hundreds of albums onto my iPod. These days, you can even sync your library to the cloud (via iTunes Match) and have “the cloud” know what music you own so that you can access it anywhere!

So.. let’s look at books… I have hundreds of books.. and I bought a Kindle. Now, like those CD’s.. I bought all those books fair and square, but yet.. there is NO way for me to take those legally purchased books and get them onto my Kindle (or whatever e-reader you prefer or even audio-book format)! Why not? Why can’t someone come up with a “Kindle Match” or some-such whereby I could somehow prove that I own the actual book so I could have it in the format I want?
Would be great to be able to take a stack of books I own, scan them into my Kindle so that I could read them on business trips… instead.. I would have to buy them all over again!
There has to be a better way.

Been too Long!!!

Prepare for a mini deluge of things that have been rattling around my head semi-recently.. (Ok.. since I got back from my European travels to the UK and Florence) They run the gamut from better uses of an iPad when touring tourist sites through a way to make reading smarter and end with my having a mini-epiphany of what I would like to do if I lived a different life!
So.. yeah.. some fun ideas.. I’ll try to pound a few of them out today/this weekend.. and then try (for the umpteenth time) to be a bit more active with posting!
Thanks for listening.. even if you aren’t ;)
