image for Finger Doctors: E-Readers Are Killing Our Business

A national association of finger doctors said today that e-readers like the Kindle and Nook are taking away a large segment of their business.

"We used to treat dozens of patients with paper cuts on their fingers from books and magazines each day, but now we hardly see any," said Dr. Aubrey Fishboon of the National Finger Physicians Guild.

"Amazon is making millions while finger doctors are going broke," he complained. "They don't care."

Fishboon said finger doctors have seen a big change in the types of injuries they treat since the Kindle and other e-readers hit the market.

"On a typical day, I might see a couple of patients with splinters or a scraped knuckle, or maybe somebody who hit their thumb with a hammer. I hate those," said Fishboon. "I sure miss the paper cuts."
