I have no idea why this wouldn’t have been done a long time ago. This is a great advantage and one that both eBook users and non-eBook readers can use. I know I have ordered many books on-line and you can’t flip through read a little like you could in the store.
This is not the same experience as holding the book in a book store, but it’s getting there….. I will have to load up the application tonight and try it out. I have been reading (listening) to audio books for sometime and the service I use is Audible – which for most books allows you to listen to a sample of the book. This lets you to hear a bit of the book and something that is key for audio books is you get to test drive the reader of the book – that person can make or break even a good book. Audio is a different experience, but I have come to love it as much as sitting and reading a book.
