I have a couple of friends who absolutely adore their Kindles. And while they admit that a year ago they could not conceive of owning one, now that they do, they can't imagine going back "to your primitive 'books' as you call them" said one of my friends. I'm pretty sure he was joking.
Anyway, the following Kindle parody kinda sums up my personal feeling about the Kindle DX. In the video, Amazon introduces the "Kindle 9XXXD" and hilarity ensues. 'Cause it's big ladies and gentlemen...Anyway, I thought it was funny.
