Seth Godin weighs in with random thoughts on the Kindle, including:

Godin says the Kindle reading experience — particularly with non-fiction titles — would benefit from reader recommendations, Digg-style voting, and hyperlinks.

The post also examines the Kindle’s pricing structure (“The pricing of books is whacked“) and Amazon’s strategy to market the Kindle to women rather than techie early adopters. It’s worth a read.
