English major with a writing concentration here. I really don’t get all the Kindle hate (whether real or perceived) from English majors (or anyone else, for that matter). Like a book, a Kindle has a time and place. Books have their advantages over Kindles and vice-versa. Why does it need to be a competition? Kindles will never completely replace books, and books don’t have some of the great features of a Kindle. They can both coexist peacefully.
