I don't think so

OK, hate it . I just do not see the appeal of the AmazonKindle - or any digital book reader thing for that matter. I cannot put it on my shelf to include in my evening browsing of my bookcase - "what should I read?". I spend my whole day in meetings or in front of the computer, and settling down with a book is like retreating to a cozy, familiar, soothing place. I don't want to do that with a computer.
Think of it this way: To me the AmazonKindle is the blow-up doll of reading - it serves a function, but it's not warm and cozy in all the right places like the real thing.
