Hubby and I own three K1s. We like the SD card capability and thus are reluctant to move onto the newer devices. Another reason we have not "upgraded" from that device is it still suites our needs. We are pretty basic in our usage of e-readers. Just down load what we want and read from beginning to end. One of the down sides of an e-reader is not being able to jump ahead and flip pages in a story like you can with a DTB. We also do not read many PDFs nor do we look at illustrations and charts. We mainly just read text. I do subscribe to Instapaper and send some of the longer articles that I find on the web to the kindle to read at my leisure and to keep. As far as reading magazines and newspapers I do not bother with that either. Tend to read the paper on my desk top.
While I like the idea of having my cookbooks in digital form I tried doing that with my netbook and the kindle pc version of the software. That did not work out to well for me since the device got in the way on the counter and I was concerned with it getting dirty. I had the same problem with using cookbooks so I now keep my cookbooks in digital form and just print out the recipe I am working with on to a sheet o paper and put it in a plastic sleeve. That works much better for me and I still do not have a lot of cookbooks cluttering up my house.
I also use calibre to organize my e-library. http://calibre-ebook.com/about
