Trying out the Kindle iPhone app

Amazon released a Kindle app for the iPhone yesterday, and I downloaded it and tried it out. I tried getting a free book--Kim Stanley Robinson's "Red Mars". Amazon's pretty shrewd giving away the first of a trilogy for free. The text was surprisingly clear and readable on the screen. However, there were two maps at the beginning of the book that I could not figure out how to zoom into. I can see myself reading novels on my phone, or some other electronic device, but I think I would still mostly read my books on paper, for now.

In any case I seem to have very little time for reading for fun these days :(.
