Today: Tweeting at the Authors Guild Protest in NYC

My goodness, it's early. I'm off to nap for a few hours before getting up and going into New York to tweet the Authors Guild protest today. For more information on this and why I am going, check out my blog post To Kindle-2 or Not:Discriminating Against People That Cannot Read.

The hashtags I'll be using are #kindle2 and #right2read.  The protest is scheduled from 12:00pm to 2:00pm EST.  Tune in if you can.  In addition to tweeting, I'll blog about the experience later this week. 

Good night. Zzzzzzzzzzz......

    My husband was born legally blind; he has limited reading unless in huge print. What is the difference between buying a book and ME reading it to him - or buying a book and having the Kindle2 "read" it to him? He may read more often! The Kindle2 doesn't get tired, or her voice run out of steam... and would be more apt to read his choice of books! HE would love it - and read more often as he wishes!!!

    Thanks for your comment and thoughts, Cynthia. I completely agree with you; if more books were accessible, more people would buy books and read. It's common sense, although not to some. Unfortunately.
