I bought it, too. Haven't really gone through it yet. I probably have a lot of the stuff in paper editions, but it's kind of cool to have it all in one place on the Kindle.

What ticks me off is that instead of becoming an alternative for those with e-readers, now e-books are the ONLY edition. I don't want a bloody e-reader, I want some of these books IN PRINT!
