Microcosm Publishing Will Trade Print Books for Your Kindle

Microcosm Publishing’s book and zine store in Portland, OR  will trade a stack of print books for your Kindle. If you give up your eReader, the store will give you the equivalent amount in paper books.

The store offers this recommendation: “[M]ake 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 [with] a $139-$189 trade-in (note: going retail for the Kindle at Amazon’s site) you might be carrying your books out in a fleet of wheelbarrows!”

What do you think? Would you give up your Kindle for $189 worth of books?
