Ramblings, citations and "brainwaves" of a college librarian in Toronto. 475 square feet refers to the size of my home, not the size of my office or library.

"Amazon site today announces availability of free downloadable
software that allows you to read your Kindle books on a PC, a
Mac, an iPad, an iPhone, or a Blackberry. I've tried both PC and
Mac and can attest that it works well: on a bright display,
rather handsomer than on the Kindle, and on a large screen,
easier to read e.g. maps that were too small to see on the
Kindle. When you open Kindle-for-PC, it tells you that you can
by one double-click access and start reading the books you
already have on your Kindle. That changes the "value
proposition" for me: buy a book once and read it on multiple
devices. Clearly a competitive move against the public release
of the iPad this weekend."
