A must-have for any Kindle reader,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: On the Origin of Species By Means of Natural Selection, or, the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life (Kindle Edition)
Can't help but notice that the Bible is one of the top downloads in the Kindle Store.
Actually, I'm a bit perplexed that Darwin's "Origin of the Species", which IMHO, is the Bible's touchstone naturalist complement, is not garnering as much attention and that this is the first review.
As we celebrate Darwin's 200th birthday and the 150th anniversary of the publication of this book, I'm still hopeful that the typical Kindle early adopter - who is often technically-inclined and highly literate, will find the time to read the book.
For such a landmark publication that is the basis of modern biology, its surprisingly readable and very accessible to the non-specialist.

I would very much like to download this book but I would like the 1st edition. I don't know what edition this is. I have the 1st edition facsimile in paperback but that's the only one I would like on kindle. Here it says print length 282 pages. My print edition has 490 pages. So..... what has been your experience with this kindle one? Has it matched well with the print?
