This, I believe, is an excellent piece of analysis, debunking the idea
that books are obsolete.

e-book sales up 160 percent
codex down 9 percent

"From Scroll to Screen" is an interesting little article. Electronic devises
are definitely giving the publishing and codex selling industry fits. There
is a simple way to measure the impending doom of Codex-- the use of copy
paper. The use of copy paper I have to believe is going up exponentially
with so many easy ways to get content now, and cheaply. If I have to read
something I read it on paper, I do not read it on a screen. I printed out
this article to read it.

So look to the paper companies for the continued life of Codex!
