    Digital Albom: commencement speech through Kindle

    By HILLEL ITALIE, AP National Writer 25 minutes ago

    NEW YORK - Mitch Albom has a new book out — well, not really a book, but a commencement speech in book form. And not in traditional book form, but as an e-book, published exclusively through Amazon.com's Kindle reader.

    "Commencement Speech To His Nephew's Graduating Class: May 30, 2008, Nice France" went on sale Thursday for 99 cents. It won't be a money maker for Albom — proceeds are being donated to a Detroit-based charity for the homeless — but it does offer a test for the digital device that has created a great debate about the future of books and great speculation over how much the Kindle is part of that future.

    Amazon.com has declined to offer specific numbers for the Kindle, a vacuum eagerly filled by industry insiders and the media, which has estimated sales as anywhere from a very modest 10,000 to a more encouraging 100,000-plus.

    Dang it.

    I thought this would be some horribly politically incorrect, yet hysterically funny addicting game.

    The day when Mitch Albom can type directly into my brain is horrifyingly near.

    This probably says something about the quality of the school my children go to, but Tuesdays with Morrie is on their summer reading list. My daughter was voluntarily reading Jane Eyre, but it wasn't one of the ones selected for her grade. But there Mitchie is, molding young minds.

    I only injured 110 midgets in getting to 100.

    That game was a big reason behind my 1.9 in my first semester of college. I'm pretty sure Randy Newman owes me an apology.
