No, the Internet Has Not Killed the Printed Book. Most People Still Prefer Them.

Even with Facebook, Netflix and other digital distractions increasingly vying for time, Americans’ appetite for reading books — the ones you actually hold in your hands — has not slowed in recent years, according to a study by the Pew Research Center.As one of those people who loves physical books, this is good news. At the same time I will admit to using my e-reader frequently - and often being frustrated that the book I want to read isn't on there but is on my physical shelf (I mostly use my Kobo for reading while camping or travelling), which explains why about half of the books on there are duplicates of books I own in paper form.
