Three Authors Still not on the Kindle

I love the Kindle. I think it is one of the best devices ever created. I use it daily.

That being said, I think it is really sad that there are so many world-class authors absent from the Kindle Store. Here are three that come to mind as of January 7, 2011:

1. Robert Penn Warren (b. April 24, 1905, d. September 15, 1989)

Best Known for: All the King’s Men (1946), Promises: Poems 1954-1956 (1957), Now and Then: Poems 1976-1978 (1978)

2. William Faulkner (b. September 25, 1897, d. July 6, 1962)

Best known for: The Sound and the Fury (1929), As I Lay Dying (1930)

3. Gabriel Garcia Marquez (b. March 6, 1927)

Best Known for: One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967), Love in the Time of Cholera (1985)
*only Spanish editions are available on the Kindle.

There many other phenomenal authors unavailable right now. Hopefully this will change. Until then, pick up their books at your public library, Amazon.com or Half-Price Books.

QOL: human, meaning and truth, beauty, religion/irreligion
