Though not all of equal merit, there are safely over 116,000 texts related to Judaism and Christianity now available on the Kindle platform (HT: Tara Kuczykowski via Carrie Stark)

Kindling Cave 4?

Amazon’s selection of texts available for the Kindle platform occasionally includes some interesting oddities. For instance, those who really want to do so can apparently read the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert volumes 10 (4QMMT) and 16 (cave 4 calendrical texts) on Kindle for a mere $239.20 and $254.34 respectively, without print-equivalent page numbers. Or, used hard covers are available for just under $180. 😉
