Finally an Exciting But in Some Ways Somber Release Day (Because One of the Books is a Memorial to a Recently Deceased Person).
Apparently Three Lives and Company did a midnight opening and Word had a read-a-thon. This is what you learn when you read the Manichi Daily News. Here's the San Jose (now dubbed Silicon Valley) Mercury News review, calling it a masterpiece.
One of our customers was showing me his new ereader as he bought a copy of Isaacson's book. I'm glad to say we have a good number of folks cross shopping device and physical book. We talked about how we could sell to him via Google Editions. And in this case, he bought the book, which of course made us happy.
Here's a little write up from The Wall Street Journal about the book. And here's The New York Times review from Janet Maslin.
