Dan Snow: I hate to say this, but apps do beat books. Upon reading the article, you realize exactly what he's talking about. It's incredible how in one medium, one can combine interviews, film clips, dictionary, maps, all in one place. What a wonderful learning experience! And as regards my Kindle. The little bit of interactivity I experience makes things a whole lot easier. If I read a word and I want a definition, I just touch the word and up comes a dictionary that explains the word. If I want to highlight, or make notes, it's done. Also, if I'm reading the book on 2 or more devices, the device I'm now using will sync to the last past of the last device I used.
