I love the Mises Institute.
I also love my Kindle.
Wouldn't it be great to have the Mises Dailies delivered wirelessly to my Kindle so that I can save and highlight my favorite passages on the go?!
Distribution costs must be pretty low, as typical subscriptions cost $0.99-$1.99. Of course, free is best, but I'm willing to pay $1/month for benefit.

In the meantime, keep up the fantastic work making Austrian Economics and Liberty available to the masses! Congratulations on your recent success of 10,000 Facebook fans!
It would be nice, but I think the kindle will go the way of Beta-max. The I-phone kills it. I still can't figure out how to bring up the keyboard when I'm reading the forums though.
Criminals, there ought to be a law.

I completely disagree. I have a Blackberry Storm, which is similar to the iPhone. I sometimes read Mises Dailies on it, but the screen is definitely not optimal (don't you prefer reading them on a computer monitor?).
Plus, the Kindle is entirely different! The screen looks like a printed page so it's easier to read than any backlit screen, including the iPhone and a computer monitor. I do nearly all of my reading on my Kindle. I've probably got over 100 books from Mises.org plus a variety of economics and physics journal articles as well. If the screen refresh was faster, I'd read Mises forum posts on it as well!
If Mises.org delivered its dailies via Kindle, they would arrive wirelessly and permit the use of highlighting or saving certain snippets for later review.
Regardless of what one thinks of the Kindle, eReaders are quickly gaining in popularity. For evidence, do a Google News search on eBook or eReader and you'll find that a huge number of companies are offering competitors in this area.
Hey, I'm reviving this thread to ask again if there is anyway to get Mises.org articles on a Kindle?
Is there a web browser on the Kindle?
To paraphrase Marc Faber: We're all doomed, but that doesn't mean that we can't make money in the process.
Rabbi Lapin: "Let's make bricks!"
Stephan Kinsella: "Say you and I both want to make a German chocolate cake."
Yes, there is a web browser on the Kindle. It is a not a very advertised feature, but it is quite capable of handling most web pages. (Does not do video)
This is apparently a Man Talk Forum: No Women Allowed!
