Writing content for Kindle

Reading on Kindle
Writing content to be read on Kindle is Jakob Nielsen's topic of the day. Pretty fascinating for any writer to see examples of content that show exactly why:

Adapting content for the Kindle e-book reader requires that you follow an unholy mix of usability guidelines for other environments:

* Print guidelines for body text
* Web guidelines for headlines and summaries
* Mobile device guidelines for page design and interaction design

In the last few months I've seen three people reading with a Sony e-book reader, and nobody with a Kindle. Not surprising, as in New Zealand we can only read Kindle content on an iPhone.
