I think the K2 is suited for the average pdf format only if you have eyes younger than 60 years, which I don't. I welcome the pan and zoom function.

I can see how it would be important for people who must leave their readers around curious people who are likely to play when the cat's away and perhaps lose the owner's place in their books or even worse accidentally delete content, but at the moment, I have no need for that either. Still, it's nice to have that option.

I don't Twit, and I rarely sign into my Facebook account, but it could be interesting to see which passages of books I'm reading catch the attention of other Kindle readers. I will try that feature at least once, and after that, who knows? I may like it!
