Did I hear the NPR report correctly? Ray Bradybury agreed to release it as an e-book?

Why is that so surprising? And it is Fahrenheit 451, not 911.

Angry? Well, the mass market paperback is still less expensive on Amazon than the Kindle version.


I always thought that the point being made by the book was that the story was what mattered. Even if the books were burned the story survived in those who memorized the text. Electronic text is still text and harder to burn than paper.
