Yeah, I borrowed a book from the library!

I borrowed a library book the other day.

No big deal, you might say.

Thing is, I borrowed it on my Kindle.

And that IS a big deal.

Here’s how you can do it if you live in Maryland.

Since the Great Library of Alexandria, knowledge dissemination through books has been a cornerstone of civilization.

Now, the ability to disseminate knowledge but not be constrained by the actual requirement to have a physical book (sure you need a Kindle, but that’s easier and cheaper for all of us…better to give 1 Kindle to every citizen than buy 10,000 books and put them in a library).

Felt like a watershed moment.
