THE END OF BOOK BURNING?

There has been much debate of the impact eReaders like the Kindle are and will have on books, newspapers and magazines but I had a thought last night that I have not seen addressed. 

Will eReaders put an end to book burning or will people just burn one eReader loaded with hundreds of copies of the book they want to burn? What do you think?

I think there will be less book burning and more book stomping. ;)

I think Ray Bradbury never envisioned the Kindle...

I vote for burning ebook readers.

I wouldn't be surprised if people burn their old ebook readers once they buy newer models.

Book burners are not the most intelligent bunch and are likely not tech savvy enough for eReaders. One thing that stupid people are good at - finding new outlets for their stupidity.

It is elementary, As kindle has already shown the capability when they deleted copies of a book for copyright issues. They( Insert dystopion power monger) will just use your e readers WiFi to erase what they do not like. No burning needed. If there are no print books who is to know when they erase bits of history. Or even easier rewrite it their way and say the document was always that way and anyone who disagrees Must be unamerican. Hmm! That last part seems familiar somehow
