Your computer says it does, but it just isn't the same. I love my Kindle, but I sometimes want to go to a bookstore and just wander through the aisles, especially the mystery section. I look at the covers, read the back, the inside front, and often the author info. I don't know if the photo influences me to buy the book, but it's fun to know what the writer looks like. I put some back, take some home. Anticipation.
Amazon tries to give me the same experience, but it is not the same. Amazon works best when you know exactly which book you want. You go there. You buy it. Bam! It's on your Kindle. Instant gratification.
I guess there will always be room for both in my life. Sometimes I don't know what I want to read, and a bookstore is the place to help with that. Other times, Kindle is perfect, because there is no bookstore where I live, and it's inconvenient to drive thirty miles for a browse.
Having both options is the best of all possible worlds.
