Do people not want ebooks anymore because paper books look nicer?

Do people not want ebooks anymore because paper books look nicer? | iGnosis - Risorse digitali per l’e-Learning e il knowledge management | Scoop.it
When did the form factor of books become more important than the content? Yes, that's a rhetorical question, but it just keeps coming to mind when I run across articles like this piece in today's Guardian: "How eBooks lost their shine: 'Kindles now look clunky and unhip.'" The particular Kindle the article is actually talking…

The store is expected to open in 2017, an Amazon spokeswoman said. It will be located in the Shops at Columbus Circle, a multistory shopping complex developed and run by Related Cos. So the rumor got the landlord right but the location wrong. Rather than move into a building which hasn't been built yet, Amazon will instead open a bookstore in a high-end mall near the southwest corner of Central Park.
