Is the Kindle Ruining Cultural Snobbishness?
According to the New York Times, individuals can no longer display their eruditeness by the cover of the book they pretend to read on the subway if the Kindle takes over. The Kindle or Sony is discreet and anonymous with only the reader knowing exactly what she is reading. Because of this, people can no longer make snap judgments about whether the reader is worth knowing based on the book jacket. This is a cause for concern, I guess.
