Amazon and Apple are WAY OFF BASE.

Next month IKEA will introduce a new, deeper version of its ubiquitous “BILLY” bookcase. The flat-pack furniture giant is already promoting glass doors for its bookshelves. The firm reckons customers will increasingly use them for ornaments, tchotchkes and the odd coffee-table tome—anything, that is, except books that are actually read.
In my experience though, the BILLY bookcase is a bit flimsy to begin with, as with most IKEA furniturea.
You’ve performed a great service to mankind.
I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve abandoned my Kindle for the iPad.
But the Kindle app is super.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen built-in bookshelves in like, FOREVER. This is why I’ve been such an enthusiastic consumer of e-books as it means that I’ll never have to buy another flimsy bookshelf from IKEA. The less I have to pack when it’s time to move the better.
