Amazon to put large Kindles in windows of abandoned Borders stores

What if large window-sized Kindles were installed on the outside of abandoned Borders stores?

It would be cool if there was a public way for people to read books at the windows of these unused storefronts. Books would probably be too long, so perhaps one-page articles or stories. Maybe even a short news story about the community.

I was standing on the Lawrence red line train platform looking at the Borders when I thought of this idea–mostly because that Borders building has been used for other literature events. Chicago Book Expo 2011 was held in that Borders building (also known as Uptown Goldblatt’s Building).
