So it's come to my attention that you can publish your own books on Kindle.  Since I'm one of those cutting edge techno-types, I thought I would try this.  Problem:  I don't have a book written.  So I'm inviting my readers to help me.  Nominate your favorite posts for inclusion in a Kindle e-book by email, or in this comment thread.  If enough of you nominate posts, I will bundle them with my own favorites into a modestly priced blog e-book with (wait for it) a special introduction written just for e-book readers.

Otherwise, I guess I'll just work on my needlepoint.  Five years from now, I will post a picture of the cushion.  So really, you win either way.
