@Tcv, to be clear, your killfile hid problematic posts from *you*, but it did not actually erase those posts from the newsgroup.

Powell's is partnering with the Google eBookstore: http://blogs.forbes.com/michaelhumphrey/2010/12/17/googles-un-goliath-ebook-strategy-a-chat-with-powells-books/?boxes=Homepagechannels
I think ebooks are here to stay, but printed books aren't going away. I like printed books individually. I have thousands of them. In the aggregate, they're a nuisance. They're bulky, they're heavy, they fall apart, they grow moldy, they burn. Yet a well-crafted printed book is more attractive than an ebook. I have a Nook and an iPhone. I've read dozens of ebooks on them. Novels, read linearly, are easier to read than technical books where I need to flip back and forth, take notes, or look in the index. I don't seriously expect to be using a device like the Nook in five years. I hope it's evolved.

This seems like another factor which will push customers towards ebooks, which is also bad for the small bookstores. Is there any way for the small bookstores to get a piece of the ebook pie for mainstream books?
