This is an excerpt of the Kindlenation Summer 2010 survey run by Stephen Windwalker.

As a male of relentlessly advancing years and Cherokee and Scots-Irish lineage, I find myself mildly interested in the profile and demographics of Kindle owners. If you would like to share a little information, I'd be interested. I won't share individual information with anyone else, but I may aggregate it and write in general terms about who we are as citizens of Kindle Nation. (Please choose all that apply to you.)

I'm a reader that checks out their page for re-publishers. It's another source of information for us.


I don't know if it's a coincidence of timing, but Penguin used to discount their "midlist" kindle Mystery titles by $1 from the paperback price. Since Random House made the Agency five the Agency Six, the Penguin kindle titles are at parity with their paperback prices. I've stopped buying them. I preordered a few April titles and still got the discount, but people who waited are being charged the extra dollar. The readers that feel the same way I do about being gouged are searching for indie cozies.
