Amazon putting ads in ebooks?

Click the title to read this. You have to admit, the minute you hear of it, you know it's inevitable.

Why not offer contextually sensitive, up-to-the-minute advertisements on your Kindle? In order to, um, enhance the reading experience?

After all, when you're reading a paper book, there's all that unused white space: the margin at the top. The margin at the right. Wasted! Just think how the reading experience could be improved by pulsating multi-colored links to whisk you away from Upton Sinclair's "the Jungle" to free coupons for McDonald's!

Yessirree, there's money in literature. I can hardly wait.

I'm so glad I went with a Sony reader instead of the Kindle. No wireless means they can't do this kind of thing.
