I emailed Jeff Bezos about this a couple of months ago. Here was the response they gave me.

Here is what I wrote
Someone on the mobileread forums (@ http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=91752
) suggested I send you an email regarding a feature I really really want.
I am a new owner of your amazing product; the kindle dx graphite. I absolutely LLLLOOOOOVVVVEEEE it, however there seems to be an important feature that it is missing. The missing feature I speak of is the "2 column when in landscape" feature.
You see, the kindle dx is easier to hold when in landscape mode when sitting in a chair, however reading the full length of a line feels "wrong."
It's a small flaw, but I'd really really like it if you could address my concern.
Thank you for reading
