Barnes & Noble has roughly 1000 bookstores and Borders has roughly half that. totaling to almost 1500 bookstores in the USA alone. As long as the stores remain avaiable for an avid-bookreader (such as myself) to pick up a book and hug it and cherish it like a mother would do for her child, I do not think that paper books will go out of style in this century. And I pray to Jane Austen and Willam Shakespeare when I say that I hope that society will never have an excuse to get rid of any paper books whatsoever.
There is also this example/analogy -
It takes one drop of rain to make an E-reader unreadable.
It takes a bathtub full of water and a hair-dryer operated by a caring hand to make a paper book all the more precious.
