Hot-blooded Italian Man Nixes Kindle

NAPLES, ITALY-- Roberto Olmaya is a passionate man when it comes to his books.

So passionate he refers to them as his "dumplings" and says that reading for him is like making love, which puts the new Amazon Kindle e-reader at a distinct disadvantage.

"I don't like it! It's, how you say, horrible, like making love to a rubber doll. Witha books, I want to feel uppa the pages, run my hand along her smooth spine, sniff the margins and fondle her footnotes. I don't wanna dees artificial book!"
