Yes, it means my current Kindle is outdated. As a consumer I’m bummed. But as an author I am elated. Because, you see, 63% of my sales are on Kindle. And in good time for Christmas, too! (A Kindle is the perfect gift for Mom. And for future holidays, give her Amazon gift cards!)
So I thought I’d share my 25-year-old (Generation Y?) son’s response to the photo.
“So if you’re going to buy a Kindle,” he said sagely, “you’ll be spending $79. Why not pay a little more and get the Kindle Touch? And the FREE 3G version is only $50 more. Why not get that instead? AND THEN, since the Kindle Fire is only $50 more than the 3G, THAT’S the one you should buy. Just sayin.”
Well okay then.
I’d be happy with the cheapest one! Michael says there’s a label for the kind of consumer I am: a Laggard. Ha!
