I’ve been negligent…

…and that’s okay.

I’ve been dedicating most of my time lately to working on assignments for a course I’m currently taking.  Things have been quite busy, and will only get busier in March with an upcoming workshop and a few weeks of family visiting here.  And although I sometimes feel that blogging can be a distraction, I will endeavour to keep this space more current.

On a different note, I’ve been reading the reviews of Amazon’s new Kindle and wondering how this could be implemented in our library.  I still can’t wrap my head around what the best, most efficient and effective way would be to use this tool.  More importantly, how can we justify $200 for each unit.  Yes, it’s cheaper than the first model, but it’s still $200.  Maybe it could be used specifically for newspapers or magazines?  Maybe we could keep each title on a separate SD card and circulate them independently of the Kindle units?

Ultimately, I don’t think I’ll be able to really envision how best to use one without trying one out.  Unfortunately, Amazon Japan’s first link is to a Sony product when I search for ‘kindle’, so I’m not sure how this will play out here.
