"I thought that once purchased, the books were mine," he wrote.
I like and love technology. And I always thought the Kindle was pretty cool. Don't own one but have played with the idea to buy one. My inner struggle to own one was the fact that I love books. Books made out of paper. Solid weight in my hands. Something I can scribble in, high light, throw across the room if the storyline pisses me off. And I own it. No back door to slip in and delete it from my file or library.
I think I read you can store like 4000 books with amazon through Kindle...which I thought was pretty awesome as well as the idea that it is paper less.............save a tree
.....however that is a real downer if a book any book can be simply deleted without your permission and knowledge.
Go figure it was George Orwell novels they deleted. Pirated or not.....it just makes you kind of wonder.
