Killing the Kindle

One Portland bookstore has it out for the Kindle! Microcosm Publishing Zine Store is asking for bookies to come out of the woodwork and declare their love for the physical book and not just the words!

Here’s what they have to offer!
“Do you love print? Do you still read books? Did you get a Kindle for Christmas? Do you want to trade in your soulless faux-literary technology for its worth in good old fashioned books? Well, friends, Microcosm Publishing’s got your back! Beginning RIGHT NOW you can bring in your Christmas Kindle to the Microcosm store in Portland (636 SE 11th) and trade it in for its worth in new or used books and zines! That’s right! Why let fad technology kill print when you can take a stand and fill up your shelves in the process. (Don’t worry, we won’t tell your parents.) And make sure to bring a friend to help you carry all your loot; most of the store’s books are priced in the $2-$6 range so a $139-$189 trade-in you might be carrying your books out in a fleet of wheelbarrows!”

Would you trade in a Kindle for it’s value in books?
