Stephen King Chooses Kindle over iPad

Over one year ago, we shot the video embedded above as Stephen King helped unveil Amazon’s Kindle 2.

Today, King’s newest book Under the Dome, is featured in an Apple iPad the official iBooks tour–check out the iBooks demo video at 1:55 for the literary cameo. Nevertheless, King has stuck by his Kindle.

Publishing Perspectives copied a quote from King about the upcoming iPad in his Entertainment Weekly column. Here’s an excert: “I have no plans to get an iPad. I know it will do more things than my Kindle, but I don’t want more things. If I want other stuff–movies, TV shows, weather forecasts, the forthcoming Josh Ritter album–I have my Mac. When it comes to reading, the Kindle supplies everything I want, thanks.”
