PS2: another random tech factoid, a Canadienne leak showed that a new 6.8″ Kindle Paperwhite e-reader is coming up, so if you are interested in a bigger screen size and more LEDs, hold off the purchase until it is officially revealed. Rumor also says that the 32GB version will have more features this time around, it won’t be just more storage. Someone at Amazon may have been studying the flagship smartphone feature lists? πŸ™‚

Lots of COVIDalia at the Amazon USA Gold Box while for fans of Kindle e-reading they have over 130 eBooks on sale

DK Kindle ebook: The Physics Book: Big Ideas Simply Explained for $2 (694 pages)

Among the latest Kindle e-offerings is this nearly-700 page DK ebook, “The Physics Book: Big Ideas Simply Explained” offered for $2. You can “Look Inside” to get a feel for the book and listen to the Audible audiobook sample.

These are of course the big DK coffee-table style books, but this is an ebook, so given that, they are best read on bigger color screens if you want to enjoy the graphics and charts and pictures and such. But if you mostly care for the text, you can read it on the Kindle e-reader too.

As of the time of writing this averages 4.7 out of 5 based on 779 customer ratings.

The link to photography is of course light, plus the physics of camera and lens design and such.

I am tempted to get it after I go through the sample.

UPDATE: a few more of the Big Ideals Simply Explained ebooks are also on sale for $2 each including Ecology, Feminism, History, Religions, Classical Music, Crime Book, Shakespeare, Politics (or as Kinky Friedman called them, poly-ticks), etc. There are at least 20 ebooks in this DK series but only some of them are on sale…

PS: this may be the perfect excuse to justify getting a new 13-inch iPad. “Honey, I need a large screen iPad to read my science books!” πŸ˜‰

PS2: I’m not sure if this is a daily deal or part of the longer running “Kindle deals” that may last from weeks to a month.
