Trade Your Kindle For Traditional Books

Bookstore Offers Traditional Books For Kindle Trade-Ins

In a move that's decidedly backward in the minds of many ereader adopters, one bookstore in Portland, OR, is offering to exchange your Kindle for its worth in free books. Its website reads:

"Do you love print? Do you still read books? Did you get a Kindle for Christmas? Do you want to trade in your soulless faux-literary technology for its worth in good old-fashioned books?"

Since I love my Kindle, there's no chance I'd let it go, but I suppose this is an appealing option for people who don't want to hang onto an unwanted ereader. Still, it's worth mentioning that even this devout ereader fan thinks that traditional ink-and-paper books are a wonderful thing!

Would you ever ditch your beloved ereader to go back to the originals?

...Nahh, I like my Kindle. There are still some books I will buy in physical form (mostly just series that I've already started in paperback so I plan on finishing them that way) but the convenience of my Kindle is magical. :)

I just got the NookColor and I must say that I'm in love with it. I wouldn't trade my reader for traditional books. They are nice to have, but I get much more enjoyment out of reading on an eReader. Plus, books were beginning to take up a lot of space in my house. Not to mention it's "greener"; that's always a plus. And I agree... how is reading on an eReader "soulless"?

to me it is the words that matter, not the paper they are printed on. i do not see how reading on an ereader is "soulless."

Agreed, traditional ink and paper books are magical, but I would be hard pressed to trade my ereader. Perhaps if they offered me double it's worth in books ;)
