I've been reading on my Kindle,which was a gift, for 2 months now. Although I have always loved the sensory experience I get from books, particularly used books and I'm not a technophile by any means, I do love the Kindle.
I appreciate the reduced use of paper, and I love the convenience of carrying so many books in one small device. I also love that I can email myself pdf and word documents to read on my Kindle and take notes on those documents.
Just like we still have non-digital music, we will not lose the experience of having hard copies of books. There certainly is something wonderful about having your favorite books to thumb through. Certainly for children's books, documents with a number of tables and figures, the Kindle is currently inadequate. However, as an avid reader, I have read countless books that are fine, but not favorites and just take up space rather than adding value to my life. For those books, my non-favorites, the Kindle is perfect.
