Why do we get hung up on Guttenberg? I love my Kindle, because it allows me to read -- note the verb, to read -- anywhere, anytime. I subscribe to the Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, the Sunday NYT (75 cents!) and now, the New England Journal of Medicine. And I'm largely done hauling books in my suitcase.
Is the Kindle perfect? No. Is it better than a book for some things? Yes. Do I still buy books? Of course, for authors/subjects I know I want to be part of my really permanent library.
As for expense, the newspaper subscription alone compensates for it.
(the guy who said cookbooks don't translate is wrong. the DX will solve that, and it has a USB port if you want to print a recipe.)
