I have been considering investing in digital books instead of physical books as I continue to build a library of books for ministry. The question that I have for you is: Apple’s iBooks or Amazon.com’s Kindle. Here is what I have so far:
My wife, Nicole, and I are are expecting our first child in January. While checking around online for resources to help with all things baby, I found Diapers.com and was fascinated by the level of automation that they have pulled off in their warehouse. Check it out…
I think that it is a no brainer for the denomination to offer resources on the Amazon Kindle. Imagine these available electronically and portably:
The Book of Discipline
The Book of Resolutions
The Book of Worship
The Pocket Book of Worship
I found myself wishing for this last weekend when I was at the bedside of a dying congregant. I did not have my pocket book of worship, but did have my iPhone via the Kindle App. I wished that I could have had those resources at my finger tips.
In addition, Kindle‘s could be given to General Conference participants and updates could be received electronically and in a way that is searchable – no need to print volumes of paper.
